You don’t need to wait for winter to arrive to enjoy some of the city’s top seasonal attractions.

If you’ve already hit the ice at Robson Square and are looking to take your skating experience to new heights, the 8,000 sq. ft. skating pond atop Grouse Mountain should be on your radar.

Grouse Mountain has transformed into our very own North Pole with The Peak Of Christmas. The annual event features a series of activity, all accessible with your regular gondola ticket.
