Grouse Mountain has announced that it will begin a “phased approach to safely reopening” starting on Monday June 22, beginning with passholders and download-only guests.

In a statement, the resort said that in the first phase of its reopening, guests will experience new operating procedures including the following:

  • Skyride capacity reduced by 70% to allow for physical distancing
  • Mandatory use of face masks while boarding, travelling on and disembarking from the Skyride (masks available if needed)
  • Required temperature screening prior to boarding for both uphill and downhill travel
  • Additional hand sanitizing stations available throughout the resort
  • Enhanced Skyride cleaning, sanitization, and disinfection protocols
  • Mandatory advanced bookings for the Skyride

“With these new procedures in place, we can ensure that you are able to safely explore and enjoy Grouse Mountain,” the resort said.

In addition, the resort has also implemented a timed booking system for both passholders and ticket purchasers in order to manage capacity and reduce wait times on the Skyride.

All travel on the Skyride must be pre-booked in advance of arrival using the resort’s new online booking system.
