Grouse Mountain’s Peak of Christmas Video – Free Ticket Giveaway!

grouse-mountain

Grouse Mountain’s annual Peak of Christmas festivities take holiday revelers 3,700 meters above downtown. It offers some of the best views of the city, an incredible ride up on Grouse’s Skyride gondola, and a guaranteed ‘white Christmas’ during Vancouver’s otherwise mild winter.

Centered around the Peak Chalet, there are a number of family-friendly attractions to visit, including: a Gingerbread Village, outdoor ice-skating, sleigh rides, and fireside carols. Santa Clause and his right-hand reindeer Prancer are also on-hand for visiting and photos.

Proceeds from skate rentals supports the Karen Magnusson Foundation for young skaters. Donate at the Gingerbread Village and for a photo with Santa to support SOS Children’s Village, which provides long-term care for children in-need.
Our recommendation: visit before or after skiing or snowboarding on Grouse or make the Peak of Christmas a destination in its own right.

For more information on hours of operation, Skyride admission tickets, and a detailed daily schedule of activities, visit:
www.grousemountain.com/peak-of-christmas

    A scene that takes my breath away. So many memories for our family, a very special sugarplum, candy cane place.

  77. Claire Graham

    My boyfriend and I have crossed the globe from Perth, Western Australia to give life in Vancouver a shot. We have never set foot on a snowy mountain, let alone skied, though we admire the views of Grouse Mountain every day (taunting us slightly).
    This time of year is particularly hard to be so far from our families. I would love to surprise my man with a ski trip for Christmas (as we can’t afford to buy each other gifts this year), and the opportunity to make lifelong memories of beautiful views, new experiences, and I’m sure a bruise or two or ten.
    This trip would make Christmas feel like Christmas.

  78. Dianne

    I live in Vancouver and have never experienced Christmas at Grouse Mountain! It looks like so much fun!
