Grouse Mountain is one of three ski and alpine resorts on Vancouver's North Shore. Open 12 months a year, visitors can enjoy a scenic cable car ride to the top of the mountain. Fabulous panoramic views of Vancouver can be enjoyed from the mountain top. Dining facilities are also available.
Grouse Mountain is 1,250 m (4,100 feet) above sea level. A series of trails are available at the mountain top. Many Vancouverites enjoy the "Grouse Grind" trail that is about 2.9 km (1.8 miles) long and entails a vertical climb of about 853 metres (2,800 feet). The average completion time is about 1.5 hours. Novice climbers should plan for a 2 hour hike and a cable car ride down the hill.
