Grouse Mountain is the Peak of Christmas in Vancouver with mountain-top ice skating, skiing, Santa’s reindeer and other snowy adventures with sweeping views high above the city.

A fire crackling in the outdoor pit, the scraping of skate blades on the ice, fresh powder falling from the sky, and the aroma of Beaver Tails wafting through the crisp mountain air. Once you purchase your lift ticket on the world-famous Grouse Mountain Sky Ride you have access to all Peak of Christmas activities, until December 24th, like visiting Santa’s reindeer Prancer, ice skating, Christmas movies in the Chalet, SOS Children’s Gingerbread Village, snowman crafts and tattoos, mountaintop sleigh rides and more.
