It’s a winter wonderland on Grouse Mountain right now. And no, we are not joking.

Grouse Mountain staff posted a picture of the snowy conditions on the resort’s Instagram account and it looks like Old Man Winter just won’t quit as 25 cm of the white stuff has fallen.

Grouse Mountain spokesperson Julia Grant told Daily Hive snow began falling on the mountain on Monday evening.

“We did receive snow overnight, which is great news for everyone wanting to get in a few more spring turns since we’re open for skiing (and) riding through May 22,” said Grant.

The weather is expected to warm up over the next few days, so try to catch the remnants of winter before the snow begins to melt.

And if not, don’t worry, Grouse Mountain will be launching their summer activities this May long weekend.

“It’s the best of both worlds!” said Grant.

So to be clear then–Grouse Mountain will soon potentially be open for winter activities and summer activities at the same time.

But this likely means that the Grouse Grind’s opening date will be further delayed due to slick ice and snow on the trail’s upper section. Last year, the trail opened on May 2 to hikers.

What is up with this year, already?!
