Continuing with our focus on Christmas events in Vancouver, today we will talk about Christmas on Grouse Mountain. There probably isn’t a more picturesque sight for Christmas activities than Grouse Mountain. The lush trees and snow capped mountain provides the perfect backdrop for a fun day with the family. Plus there is an ice skating pond at the top, how cool is that!
Sleigh bells ring, choirs sing! During the month of December, the spirit of Christmas comes alive with a magical celebration and a multitude of festivities on top of Grouse Mountain.
Bring your family to Santa’s Workshop and meet reindeer, or take a sleigh ride* through our mystical alpine forest. You can also experience the tranquil beauty of skating on our 8,000 square foot mountaintop Ice Skating Pond, surrounded by snow-topped trees.
Learn more about Santa’s reindeer at our daily ranger interpretive talks or have a digital photo taken with Santa to keep a memento of your Peak of Christmas visit!
Visit the Theatre in the Sky to enjoy classic Christmas movies on our large high-definition screen. Or listen to joyful Christmas carols sung by the enchanting voices of Vancouver choirs.
Visit the spectacular SOS Children’s Village Parade of Trees in the Spirit Gallery starting December 3rd.
These fabulous Peak of Christmas activities are all complimentary with your Grouse Mountain Admission, Annual Membership, Winter Pass, or Lift Ticket.
