    Went here while in Vancouver, but thought the pricing was a bit steep at $43.95 a pop for the ride up in the lift. We decided to skip this to do the peak to peak at Whistler. If this was a little cheaper would definitely have done this.

    It was the first time I had my head in the clouds - literally! If you're tough enough try hiking up the mountain. Many make it, many don't. For the rest of us, the lift is just fine. At the top there are black bears, zip lining, ski lifts and other interesting things to do. Overall, Grouse Mountain is great for someone who loves the outdoors and a little adventure.

    I spent the best of the a day here and it still wasn't enough! So much to see, if you like your views, walking, bears,wolves, lumberjack shows and the gondola ride up/down is pretty cool too!

    I wish I visited Grouse Mountain in the winter time! Riding their ski lifts would have been more picturesque. Aside from the time of year, Grouse Mountain is a pretty gorgeous scenic point and there’s plenty for the whole family to do. You can walk/hike the trails, see some animals and shows, zip line, or even visit the windmill!

    The “skyride” in their cable car itself is an adventure! You basically climb elevation in a short amount of time while listening to some information the employees have about the mountain.

    My group took public transportation here, very commuter friendly!

    Grouse Mountain for skiing or snowboarding is kick-ass! You can't beat a mountain which is 30 minutes bus ride from downtown with stunning views across Vancouver.

    However, pro tip: Don't attempt the Grouse Grind aka "Mother Nature's Stair master" with your *much* healthier Vancouver born-and-bred friends unless you want to experience the closest thing to hell on earth. It is BLOODY DIFFICULT. *wheezes*

    One of the amazing things about Vancouver (besides stunning scenery and all the cosmopolitan options) is how short a trip it takes to be in the "wilderness".

    So, I took a short drive to North Vancouver one day and took the gondola ride up Grouse Mountain. Cost of the Gondola Ride - $$$. The resulting view and experience - Priceless.

    When I come back the next time, I'll try out the ski area there and maybe even walk up or down the Grouse Grind. However, at the time I was there, they were doing a search and rescue operation on the mountain for a missing hiker. Sadly for him, he took a wrong turn and didn't return home. Even so close to civilization, the Grouse Grind requires some hiking skill and caution.

    But on this trip, I walked around, marveled at the City, hiked around the top of the mountain, and hung out a little bit at the "Lodge".

    Outdoors exercise for me is usually a hike when I'm in Vancouver, the Grousse Grind kicks butt! 1500 feet straight up and my best time is 55 minutes.

    On a sunny day, this is a much-go. At the top, they say you have a spectacular view of downtown. The rope-way to the top is very expensive, though ($40, round-trip). You can also hike up. I would have, but I ran out of time.

    Great place to spend the day skiing or just go for the night and have a special event like a birthday or anniversary.

    Grouse Mountain is about 15 - 20 minutes outside of Vancouver, but totally worth the trip. You can ski, snowboard, ice skate in the winter, and hike and check out the wildlife in the summer. I have not tried them, but I hear they have paragliding and ziplines as well. The skyride up the mountain has some spectacular views. I would recommend going in the daylight, checking everything out and staying until nightfall to enjoy the Vancouver skyline.

    Hiked the Grouse Grind. An amazing and very intense trail! Over 100,000 people high it yearly.
