The day will include lunch, soccer activities with Whitecaps FC players, Skyride views, and the Grouse Grind — if you and Dad are up for the challenge. The Whitecaps women’s team will be on site as well and there will be plenty of photo opportunities and the chance to get autographs.

Sign up for the Grouse Grind will begin at 10:00am, with the group climb starting at 10:30am. Those wishing to take the Skyride up can do so around 11:00am. Lunch and youth soccer activities will be between 11:30am and 1:00pm, with a group soccer event from 1:00pm to 2:00pm up on the ‘Peak of Vancouver’.

There will be a silent auction, benefitting the Whitecaps Foundation, and participants can enjoy everything else that Grouse Mountain has to offer.

Registration for the day is $195 for a family of four (2 adults, 2 youth), $90 per adult or $35 per youth. This includes lunch and all of the day’s activities.

If you are planning on doing the Grouse Grind be sure to prepare yourself for the 2.9km climb and wear suitable footwear.
