A mountaintop Christmas wonderland returns to North Vancouver this month

Nov 15 2019, 12:26 pm

Gently falling snow. Twinkling lights. Whipped topping on a warm drink. A snowy beard on a jolly elf. This year, wrap yourself in the magic of the holiday season during the Peak of Christmas at Grouse Mountain.

Beginning on November 22 and running until early January, the popular outdoor destination on the North Shore will once again be transformed into a winter wonderland for all to enjoy.

For more outdoor fun, visitors can take a spin on Grouse Mountain’s 8,000-sq-ft outdoor ice skating pond or zip down the multi-lane snow sliding zone.

You can also take a sleigh ride through the mountain’s Winter Wonderland, meet magic reindeer, watch family Christmas movies, and write a letter to Santa.

At Santa’s Workshop, believers young and old can share their special Christmas wishes and take a photo. Photos are pay by donation to BC Children’s Hospital.

Access to the Peak of Christmas is included with your Annual Local’s Pass, Y2Play or Winter Season Pass as well as regular Alpine Experience tickets.

And if you really want to get to know St. Nick, join him for breakfast from Saturday, November 30 to Tuesday, December 24, and be sure to get on his good list.
