Vancouver Travel—Grouse Mountain (The Peak of Vancouver)

Grouse Mountain best of the area is one of the North Shore Mountains of the Pacific Ranges in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Exceeding 1,200 m (or 4,000 feet) in altitude at its peak, is the site of an alpine ski area, Grouse Mountain Resort, which in the winter season overlooks Greater Vancouver with four chairlifts servicing 26 runs. In the summer, Grouse Mountain Resort features lumberjack shows, a birds of prey wildlife demonstration, and a scenic chairlift ride.

Public access to the mountain top can be by
  • Swiss Garaventa aerial tramway, or
  • Grouse Grind hiking trail (Open for hiking May-October.)
