The Gondola Ride to the summit is truely amazing and breathtaking. Cannot say enouoght good things about that. What definitely needs imrpovement is the ticket lines. Slow Slow Slow. A line for skiers and one for those just wanting to take the skyride would be very helpful. We were number 4 in line and it took over 30 minutes to get to the purchase agent.

Grouse is a decent ski mountain and is super convenient: only a half hour outside downtown Vancouver. It has good powder conditions now, better for skiing than Seymour. It’s just a tad cheaper (than Cypress with its Olympic runs); but at half the price of Whistler-Blackcomb you won’t be disappointed. Grouse has a ski lodge at the top of the gondola, which deposits riders where the skate/snowshoe rentals and skating pond is located. The tram from the parking lot sales office takes you above the cloud line and swings at each tower-crossing (50 m high). Windows are open at the front and back of the tram with a good view of North Shore. Balcony seating at the back of the ski lodge also offers an incredible view, behind Guest Services (counter for $20 downloading of ski lift tickets). It’s simplest to skip the lineup and buy tickets online, climbing the stairs directly up to the tram after parking your car. Alternatively, the bus to reach Grouse is #236 Lonsdale Quay, which can be caught from North Shore; at Canada Place the skytrain/transit fare can be bought & used to cross by seabus from Downtown to the bus station @Lonsdale Quay. Prices for Skylift gondola is $61 (seniors $54, child $34). For a family of four it’s $161 to take the Gondola, or a ski lift pass is $200/3 people. We filled up the gas tank on Capilano Road (across from Superstay by Best Western/Econolodge); and on the way driving up, also explored Capilano Suspension Bridge, which is lit up by day or night. Spend a day on the mountain, and you’ll have plenty of photos to write home of a day spent in paradise!

Peak of Christmas was a major disappointment. There was no signage or information telling you what to do so I wasted thirty minutes in line only to be told to walk to the sky gondola. We paid $109 for family of four to basically just go sledding. $5 extra to rent a slide. The sledding area was super tiny. There were two small runs. No employees working there. Then two employees showed up to say that we had to start the run further down the hill which meant starting on the slope which forced people to fall off their sleds and shorten their runs. At that point we left. The ice skating was a small patch of ice that fit about 20 people. Not worth it. They had two small reindeer and the light walk was a tunnel that was the length of a hotel corridor. Overall not worth the money at all!! The sky gondola was fun but cramped with unmasked Covid children. Beautiful scenery and mountains on the ride though.

Grouse Mountain & The Peak of Vancouver, just some 20 minutes from Vancouver’s downtown core, offers Special Festive Family Rates & The Possibility of Sighting Reindeer.
Now wouldn't that be nice?
From November 26 through to Xmas day, December 25, families of four can get a ticket for 109$.
That is quite a deal when usually tickets are 51$ a person.
And: In addition to admission to Grouse Mountain, these tickets allow access to the skating rink on the pond and to other amenities.
The mountain over this festive period is open from 8 am to 9 pm with a curtailed time on Christmas Eve and other of the big celebrations.
How wonderful it is to go up at this time, and at a good rate.

Twelve family members signed up and pre paid online like the encourage.
Get there and there is No Parking or coordination in lot. Other then kid pointing to stay to right.
If they also fish bones the angle of parking lot all facing one way and backed in to park and leave out lower road the could increase lot size by a lot.
As for tickets they over sold for day with well in 500 people waiting to go up.
The sky ride packed like sardines with excess of 30 people on it at once which I am sure does not meet COVID protocol.
There was no way after driving in from eastern valley and probably stand inline for close to 2 hours with kids were we going to to even think of making it up and down in a good time and having a good day for the Christmas events they had set up.
Thank you Grouse mountain for the family run event.
Won’t be back again.
Hope you are making up for the slow year last year at everyone’s expense.

Even tho the mountains are so beautiful, they have a worse customer service. I tried calling them as I had a specific question waited for one hour 45 minutes and I just gave up! I also emailed the guest service 4 times and still no responds. So disappointing!

We originally prebooked our mountain admission ticket for the day a storm flooded many parts of British Columbia , we drove to Grouse Mountain but the cable car was closed due to the rain the very friendly reception staff gave us a prompt refund . We revisited on the next sunny day - we were so glad as the conditions on top were perfect ,powder fresh snow and blue skies . We visited the day before the ski runs were open so it was busy with staff preparing everything but that didn’t detract from the beauty of Grouse Mountain . The perfect end to our British Columbia Adventure- thanks to all the Staff at Grouse Mountain

Glad that we were able to move things around for you and that you were still able to get up to the mountain and have a day with the mountain. Hope to see you back again soon.

Paid for a gondola ride up for myself for my daughter (over $100). We were squeezed into the gondola car, approximately 75 people in a space for 40. At the top almost all activities are closed due to Covid. This is becoming an excuse for companies to charge full price and not provide the normal services. This ride was not worth it. Save yourself $60.00.

Hi Dee - sorry that your visit didn't meet your expectations. October is a season between high seasons, where not all summer activities are operational and we aren't open for winter activities yet. We do have the information listed on our web site as well as on site, however our team should have communicated this to you upon arrival. We will use this as a coaching opportunity to help our team ensure this doesn't happen again.

The mountain and sky ride were all lovely. Pretty cheesy lumberjack show but entertaining for kids.
The worst thing was to see the 2 amazing grizzly bears in a pen which is ridiculously small. Very few trees. There is so much space it could have been made enormous for them but presume it is kept so small so all the tourists can watch them. Shameful

Our Grizzly Bears were orphaned back in 2001 and we were able to provide them with a refuge here at the mountain as they were deemed unreleasable. They have a 5 acre habitat and live as natural lifestyle as they can. We would be happy to provide you with more information - just let us know. kheal@grousemountain.com

The Grouse Grind Trail was one of the most intense hikes I have completed. It was well marked and enjoyed the sense of community that it brought with people encouraging/supporting each other. At the top, the views were fantastic and there was lots to do!
