Go skating on a mountaintop outdoor pond in North Vancouver this winter

Nov 7 2018, 7:33 pm

Gently falling, sparkling flakes. Twinkling lights. Whipped topping on a warm drink. Frosted branches. A snowy beard on a jolly elf. This year, wrap yourself in the magic of a white Christmas, during Grouse Mountain’s Peak of Christmas event.

Yes, as is tradition during the Christmas season, the popular outdoor destination on the North Shore will once again be transformed into a winter wonderland for all to enjoy, beginning on November 23.

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.
