Sky ride
To get to the top of Grouse Mountain you board a sky ride! Step onboard the famous Grouse Mountain Skyride, and get ready to experience a one-mile journey like no other. This is exciting for kids and parents to see the sights from high above the ground, beautiful view of the moutain and city!

You are well above towering Douglas fir, breathtaking views of the city of Vancouver, sparkling Pacific Ocean, Gulf Islands, and snowy peaks unfold as you journey up the mountainside. North America's largest aerial tramway is your gateway to the majestic nature of the Peak of Vancouver, and an experience in itself.

Grouse Mountain has a host of entertaining shows to make your BC experience even more memorable. Enjoy live music from breathtaking vantage points, watch Born to Fly in the Theatre in the Sky and be dazzled by the skill and showmanship of world-class lumberjacks.

Presented at the Theatre in the Sky, Grouse Mountain's
high-definition cinema experience, "Born to Fly" takes you up close on a dramatic journey through the scenic beauty of BC. This stunning documentary reveals the highest peaks of BC's mountains, the sparkle of ocean whitecaps and the lushness of rainforest, all from an eagle's perspective.

World Famous Lumberjack Show.

Perhaps not quite as fast as the two world-class lumberjacks in Grouse Mountain's World Famous Lumberjack Show.

Two lumberjacks will  amaze you with their skills, tricks and showmanship. I brought my 3 year old daughter and she loved this show. She laughed so hard, and was so amazed at what they could do! Among the challenges are a 60-foot tree climb, an axe-throwing competition, and the always exhilarating log-rolling.

Birds in Motion
Now Grouse Mountain Resorts Ltd., in cooperation with Pacific Northwest Raptors, invites you to witness some of nature's finest athletes demonstrate what they do best - "free flight".
Located atop Grouse Mountain, nestled amongst natural forest habitats of the spectacular BC Coast Mountain Range, the "Birds in Motion" amphitheatre affords you a chance to sit back and relax, while you enjoy these amazing birds against one of the world's most dazzling scenic backdrops.

"Birds in Motion" is an educational and enjoyable experience for birdwatchers, naturalists, raptor enthusiasts, and visitors alike. Flying Demonstrations are offered three times daily at 1:30pm, 3:30pm and 5:30pm from May to September.

The Peak of Christmas
During the month of December, the spirit of Christmas comes alive with a magical celebration and a multitude of festivities on top of Grouse Mountain.
Bring your family to Santa's Workshop and meet reindeer, or take a sleigh ride* through our mystical alpine forest. You can also experience the tranquil beauty of skating on our 8,000 square foot mountaintop Ice Skating Pond, surrounded by snow-topped trees.

Learn more about Santa's reindeer at our daily ranger interpretive talks or have a digital photo taken with Santa to keep a memento of your Peak of Christmas visit!

Visit the Theatre in the Sky to enjoy classic Christmas movies on our large high-definition screen. Or listen to joyful Christmas carols sung by the enchanting voices of Vancouver choirs.

These fabulous Peak of Christmas activities are all complimentary with your Grouse Mountain Admission, Annual Membership, Winter Pass, or Lift Ticket.
