AAA Editor Notes

The Eye of the Wind is on top of Grouse Mountain at 6400 Nancy Greene Way. This 65-metre (215-ft.) wind turbine on the mountaintop is reportedly the only one in the world that allows you to stand in a glass viewPOD at the top of the tower (just 10 feet from its massive, rotating blades), giving an awe-inspiring 360-degree view of Vancouver, the harbor, the Coastal Mountains and, on a clear day, mounts Baker, Rainier and Garibaldi. The turbine provides approximately 20 percent of Grouse Mountain's energy requirement. Food is available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
Grouse Mountain $43.95; $39.95 (ages 65+); $24.95 (ages 13-18); $14.95 (ages 5-12); $113.95 (family, two adults and two children). The Eye of the Wind tour (includes Grouse Mountain and chair lift) $57.95; $53.95 (ages 65+); $38.95 (ages 13-18); $14.95 (ages 5-12); $139.95 (family, two adults and two children).
