    It's steep at $60 a person, but worth paying the extra 15 bucks for the ultimate pass so you get the most out of the summit. Go early before 10am to avoid the crowds (and pack a jumper).

    Amazing scenery from top of this mountain over Vancouver. So much to do up there. Before going back down on the telefrik make sure to view the sunset from the outdoor patio of the restaurant

    Whether it's for handsome men in flannel, axe-throwing, wood-carving action or both, the Lumberjack Show is brilliant. Just don't get caught without enough layers when that misty mountain fog sets in!

    There isn't a more touristy thing to do in Vancouver, but the pricey gonadal fee is worth it for the mountain-top hikes, Grizzlies for viewing, epic view at the Eye of the Wind.

    this place captured my heart. No1 and "must see" if you are in Van. Grouse Grind up during the day, enjoy the view, get some food, walk around and wait until the Van's lights turn on. gorgeous!!!

    Try the Grouse Grind trail, it's tough but it really worths the effort! You'll be proud to be up there! And... your effort will save you 30$! Spend only 10$ to get back down with the Gondola.

    Make sure you check out the lumberjack show, it's really cool! Also, if you're a girl and you wanna join them in a number take a seat up front,close to the stairs ;)

    Most of the staff aren't aware of the snowshoe trails in detail. Head left at the pond past the cat tracks and look for the orange circles saying "SSG". Follow those to the top!

    Great Place for skiing in the winter, ideal for hiking in the summer and autumm.. Awesome view of the city. Try the Roast beef sandwich and an apple juice at the restaurant.

    After grinding the mountain, enjoy the setting with a poutine. Plus, you'll maybe have the chance to see a bear if it's your lucky day.

    Grouse grind is always a fun thing to do in summer... So many stairs, but a rewarding scene is awaiting you at the top... Leave the gondola for the tourists ;)

    In the Men's washroom the first sink has n'ice cold water from the tap which is great to cool down with after a grind! The other sinks are cool to warm.

    If you are capable, do the Grouse Grind. A very memorable way to remember Vancouver and it's mountains.

    Try the BCMC trail. It ends up at top like to Grind but you miss the whole weekend warrior crowd and avoid the traffic jam. Take your time --- there's no timer. :) Read more

    Avoid the long line up at the bistro and cafe. Go to the Rusty Rail BBQ. Outdoor patio with beer and poutine.

    There is not any women`s snowboard boot in rental !!! They only have men`s boot, so if you have small foot, your foot will be like a pencil in a glass!

    The Grouse Grind is free to hike up but it's called the grind for a reason. It costs $10 to take Gondola down. Round trip Gondola is $44.74 as of December 2012.

    if you walk up, it takes 2 hours. Then you can pay 10 bucks to ride the gondola back down.

    Grouse mountain is always prone to high winds and so on, and even if you snowboard for like an hour, they would not give you your ticket back.

    Challenge yourself by hiking the famous Grouse Grind, or enjoy a scenic gondola ride to the top of the mountain. The awaiting views will take your breath away.

    Do the grouse grind. and get down at a discount fare on the gondola for $5! Move your lazy bums and save some money while you're at it! Win-win! (usual gondola round trip fare: $20

    Hike the Grouse Grind. Depending on your fitness level, it will take between an hour and an hour and a half. Beautiful view from the top!
  • Nicole C.
    Feel like I got ripped off. Other than seeing the Olympic Torch, it was a complete waste of time and money. The butterfly garden was lame and the lumberjack show was a joke. Do Capilano instead.

    Наденьте удобную обувь, одежду (не джинсы), возьмите с собой воды и перекус, например, протеиновый батончик. В среднем хайк вверх занимает 1 ч 20 минут.
