Escape the bustling city and hop on the Skyride up to Grouse Mountain – but don’t forget your skates!

Well, even if you do, you can rent a pair at the Fireside Hut and enjoy the Ice Skating Pond at the Peak of Vancouver, which is now open to the public.

Bring your little ones for a fun family experience, or take your sweetheart for a romantic date night. Either way, the 8,000 square foot pond is included with your Alpine Express ticket, Snow Pass, or an Annual Local’s Pass.

The Skating Pond is available to guests during regular mountain operating hours (typically from 9am – 10pm daily). 

Be sure to explore the other attractions Grouse has to offer, including Ziplining, walking tours, the Grizzly Bear Habitat, Mountain Disc Golf and Theatre in the Sky.

And if you’re hungry, there are plenty of delicious foodie gems on the mountain, such as The Observatory (make sure you reserve in advance), Altitudes Bistro and plenty of cafes.
