It’s time once again to celebrate the festive season, as Grouse Mountain’s annual Peak of Christmas returns for another season.

This year’s event returns on Friday, November 20, and runs through January 3rd, 2021.

“Experience the magic of the season in a mountaintop Christmas wonderland at Vancouver’s North Pole,” said Grouse Mountain’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Julia Grant. “Our Peak of Christmas celebration allows guests of all ages to immerse themselves in the festive season by wandering through the glittering lights of our enchanting Light Walk, meeting Santa’s real reindeer or gliding across the outdoor Skating Pond.”

Guests can also marvel at the stunning light installations that bring radiance to the winter night on Grouse Mountain’s popular Light Walk. As dusk falls, enjoy a walk or snowshoe amongst the glittering lights around Blue Grouse Lake.

And of course, guests will once again be able to go for a spin on Grouse Mountain’s 8,000-sq-ft outdoor mountaintop skating pond surrounded by snowy trees adorned with glimmering lights.

While Santa himself will not be visiting Grouse Mountain this holiday season due to the ongoing pandemic, two of his reindeer, Dancer and Vixen, will take up residence on the mountaintop to spread Christmas cheer in his absence.

All Peak of Christmas activities are complimentary with an annual or snow pass, a Skyride admission ticket or at a special family rate of $99 for two adults and two children.

Advance Skyride reservations are required with ticket purchase as well as for pass holders accessing the mountain. Face coverings are also required inside all resort facilities, as well as in areas where physical distancing cannot be maintained.
