Y2Play and Grouse Mountain Giveaway

Comments 133 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Rain and snow continue to fall around the Lower Mainland which means it’s a great time to check out the local mountains. With restaurants, an outdoor ice rink, sleigh rides, zipline, snowshoeing, and snowy slopes, Grouse Mountain is your ultimate winter playground. To get the most out of the rest of this season — and next — Y2Play passes are on sale now.

Ski 5, Ski Free! The best deal around on a season snowpass — you need to ski or ride just five times for the pass to pay for itself!

With a Y2Play pass you can start skiing and riding now and continue through all of next season. With more than a metre of new snow in the past two weeks, these are ideal conditions to hit the slopes. This year’s Y2Play Passes have even greater value, featuring benefits such as one free lift ticket loaded to bring a friend, a food and beverage credit, exclusive discounts on helmets, goggles and gloves and 10% off all food for the rest of this season and next.

Also, for the first time, Grouse Mountain is excited to offer a Y2Play Student Pass for full-time post-secondary students for just $279. Y2Play passes are now on sale online, by telephone (604) 980-9311 or in-person at Grouse Mountain.
