Snow Days in Vancouver

SNOW.  Unlike our friendly neighbours to the east, snow in Vancouver is an anomaly, a rare occurrence to be treasured and enjoyed.  Although for many commuters, the mention of flakes in the forecast stirs up feelings of fear and dread, I find myself thrilled at the prospect.  Thoughts of the fluffy white stuff touch the prairie girl deep inside me, bringing back fond childhood memories of tobogganing, skating, snowball fights and snowmen.  Like frosting on a cake, a touch of snow brings a sort of seasonal flavouring to our majestic city. From the Peak of Christmas to the Robson Square Ice Rink, the Christmas spirit is alive and well in Vancouver.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas atop Vancouver’s Grouse Mountain. The wet weather the past few days has helped transform the mountain into a winter wonderland. It’s a great time to dust off the old ski jacket, mittens and snow boots because like it or not – winter is here!

This weekend marks the start of Grouse Mountain’s Peak of Christmas, which brings Santa Claus, reindeer, and outdoor skating pond and more. One highlight of the event is the dreamy Light Walk feature that is coming back for a second year to guide you on a magical adventure through the snow-covered trees.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas … at least on Grouse Mountain.

Frosted white with a fresh dump of snow, Grouse is set to launch its annual Peak of Christmas festivities, Nov. 27. Each year, the ski mountain is transformed into a scene straight from the North Pole, where you can rub noses with real reindeer, stroll through an alpine forest bedecked with lights, and even get some face time with the big man in red himself.

The mile-long ascent aboard Grouse’s Skyride aerial tram brings guests to the base, more than 300 metres above the city of Vancouver. Along the way, the scenery changes from Pacific rainforest to winter wonderland, as you skim over the tops of spruce and fir heavy with snow. Continue reading:
