Profile Last Updated: May 22, 2009
Grouse Mountain stands at the peak of Vancouver. The bright lights of "The Cut" and the Peak Chair can be seen from downtown to Richmond and beyond. Boasting Vancouver's first detachable high-speed quad chair lift, Grouse Mountain has focused their latest efforts on a different sort of development, the Grouse Mountain Refuge for Endangered Wildlife (GMREW). GMREW is a conservation, education and research centre featuring wildlife species native to British Columbia.
For the Love of Skiing
With 1,210 m of vertical drop, 24 runs for skiing and riding and more than 5 km of cross-country trails, Grouse truly is one of Vancouver's premier mountaintop destinations. The adventure begins right from the parking lot as you board North America's largest aerial tramway, which whisks you to 1,100 m above sea level to a snow-capped nirvana. Grouse also boasts some of B.C.'s best mountain biking trails, challenging enough even for expert riders, and definitely not for the faint of heart. All of this is only 15 minutes from the city; making it one reason so many Vancouverites and travellers get their first taste of outdoor adventure at the Peak.
Thrill-seekers will get their fill in the terrain park, atop the Peak and amongst the trees on classic lines, like "Outer Limits," "Hades" and the "Purgatory." Not quite there yet and need a lesson? The ski and snowboard school (from adult clinics to 'ski wee') is one of the best around. Those who are brave in spirit (if not in body) will also find a myriad of relaxing and pleasurable activities, such as snowshoe hikes in the Munday Alpine Snow Park, sleigh rides and ice-skating. Catch a ride up to the Peak Chalet, with cozy fireplaces, après-ski bars, gift shops and boutiques, and revel in the 360-degree views of Vancouver and the Pacific Coast Range. Refuel after a day on the slopes and grab a bite at Altitudes Bistro or Lupin's Café. If you are really out to impress, bring a date to The Observatory fine dining restaurant for an evening they won't soon forget.
