While the weather may finally be spring-like in the city, winter is still currently king when it comes to local mountains and hiking trails – including the Grouse Grind.
That fact was driven home on Thursday, when District of North Vancouver Firefighters rescued two individuals from the snow-covered and still very snowy trail.
The rescue took place at the 3/4 mark of the popular trail, according to a tweet from firefighters.

The Grouse Grind is closed every winter by Metro Vancouver Parks and re-opens when annual spring maintenance works are complete and conditions are safe. Metro Vancouver Regional District normally re-opens the trail by mid-May every year.
