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.
