Owner description: Just 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver, Grouse Mountain attracts locals and tourists alike. During the summer, guests enjoy hiking, Zip Line Adventures, paragliding, sightseeing, lumberjack shows and more. In winter, we have skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, sleigh rides among many other activities. Grouse Mountain also features several different dining venues, from café style at Lupins to casual dining at Altitudes and fine dining as a guest at The Observatory. We also have a refuge for endangered wildlife.

We went up to the top with everyone in Vancouver. "If you can see the ground move in!" Once we got to the top the views were amazing looking back at the city. The crowds were not. No places to sit and eat. Every nook and cranny was taken. The line to catch the tram down was an hour long. The great thing was the light walk with snowshoes. What a wonderful sight. Lights everywhere and no crowds. Well worth the effort.

Thank scrollforyou

Got the seabus and the 236 bus so easily accessible. The views were stunning at top of the mountain. The skyride is highly recommended. If you wish to spend a morning this is a great way to do so.

This was a truly great experience.
We visited off peak (September 2017) so I expect that there were fewer visitors than during high season, which was good although there probably weren't as many activities.
We went to the top of the mountain which gives incredible views over Vancouver.
The ski lift for the second part of the journey is great fun.
The bears were gorgeous although I did feel sorry for them in their enclosure, but I think I recall being told they were orphans so maybe they cannot be released into the wild.
A great day, would certainly do it again.

Hi Dave,

Thank you for leaving such a kind review. We certainly love the view from on top of the Mountain as well, especially after the Peak chairlift! September is when our summer season is winding down, so we are usually a little less busy then peak summer season. You are also correct about Grinder and Coola, our two orphan grizzly bears. The were orphaned as cubs, and unfortunately are unable to be released back into the wild. But they do enjoy their life in the 5 acre habitat!

We are so glad you enjoyed your day here at Grouse Mountain, and we look forward to welcoming you back again!

We are from a sub-tropical climate so rising up in the gondola and experiencing the snow and views was amazing for a Brissie Aussie couple. Friendly staff and we enjoyed a lovely lunch with views down to Vancouver city. Definitely worth the trip when you are in the area.

Visited the mountain top and it was very busy. However once up top the wasn’t a lot to see except for the bears. The restaurant had some good food but as always overpriced. Although I did enjoy seeing the times of those people who chose to take the Stella to the top

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, although we worry you didn't have the opportunity to participate in all of our available activities! In the summer we have a World Famous Lumberjack Show, live Birds in Motion demonstration, and Guided Eco-Walks, just to name a few. In the winter we have snowshoeing, ice skating, a sliding zone, and many other activities.

We hope you'll be able to visit again and take advantage of these great activities!
