It’s almost time to shred some fresh powder.
Just picture it now – you’re speeding down the local mountains right after a heavy snowfall the night before. There’s a cool breeze in the air and you’re feeling alive as you look out over the city – all while carving turns on your snowboard.
Yes, this is the Peak of Vancouver – Grouse Mountain.
And while winter is still a few weeks away, Grouse has already received a light blanket of snow. This is just a sign of what’s to come as the forecast for this winter is ideal for skiers and riders. Now you can make the most of it by purchasing an Early Bird snow pass for the North Shore’s biggest terrain variety.
Since the passes will only be available for a limited period, you’ll want to snap up yours soon. So to help you, we’ve compiled a list of six benefits that come with the Early Bird package.
Unlimited access to skiing/riding
Once you have a snow pass, you’ll be able to visit Grouse Mountain and hit the slopes at any time during the 2017/18 season. Because this year’s snow forecast is expected to be epic, you’ll enjoy great conditions day and night since the mountain is open for night skiing and riding. If you buy your Early Bird pass now, you’ll save a massive 40% off regular pass pricing, which leaves you with more money to spend on new ski gear and après ski drinks.
Food and drink discounts
You’ll most definitely work up an appetite when you’re skiing or snowboarding, so making a stop at the chalet to refuel is essential. Luckily, when you purchase your Early Bird pass, you’ll get 10% off food and beverage, plus 20% off at the Grouse Mountain Starbucks. Mid-ski hot chocolate break? Check.
Don’t sweat it if you accidentally leave your snowboard at home when you’re going to Grouse. Because if you have an Early Bird pass, you’ll be able to access a one-time snowboard/ski rental. Then when you want to take a break from carving on the slopes, you can enjoy one set of free snow shoe rentals, and a pair of ice skate rentals. Oh, and you’ll also get 20% off further rentals, too.
Discounted retail purchases
Things like ski gloves, goggles, and helmets are subject to wear and tear throughout the season. If your goggles snap while you’re up on Grouse Mountain, you can simply pop into one of the stores onsite and buy another pair because you’ll save 20% off retail purchases when you have an Early Bird pass.
Mountain Interchange Program
Winter is the perfect time for a road trip and you can visit a number of different resorts when you have a Grouse Mountain Early Bird pass, thanks to the Mountain Interexchange Program.
