AAA Editor Notes
Grouse Mountain is at 6400 Nancy Greene Way. Step into The Skyride, an aerial tramway, for a 1.6-kilometre (1 mi.) ride over Grouse Mountain's lofty Douglas firs to the mountaintop where, from a height of 1,100 metres (4,100 ft.), you'll see a breathtaking panorama of downtown Vancouver. On clear nights, gaze at the city's floodlit buildings and twinkling lights reflected in the harbor.

Crowd-pleasing winter activities include skiing, snowshoeing, snowboarding, ice-skating, sleigh rides, a Sliding Zone and Light Walk. In the summer, take in a helicopter tour, paragliding and ziplining; a 45-minute lumberjack show; a Birds in Motion demonstration featuring free-flying birds of prey; and guided or self-guiding interpretive walks that inform about area flora, fauna and geology.

The Grouse Mountain Refuge for Endangered Wildlife, a 2-hectare (5-acre) habitat also open year-round, is home to two orphaned grizzly bears and a gray wolf.

Competitive locals and visitors can do the Grouse Grind (commonly referred to as “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster”), a grueling 2.9-kilometre (1.8 mi.) climb up the mountain.
