Grouse Mountain?

Grouse Mountain?

Spending time in Vancouver in July with my parents and was considering a half-day or so at Grouse Mountain. Are the attractions there worth the sticker price? We're interested in the Skyride, the wind turbine, and the wildlife refuge. Thanks!

Yes, it is expensive, but if it is a beautiful sunny day go, the views are fantastic. don't think you will be disappointed.

Don't go up in the morning, as most of the activities start around 11:30 or so. And make use of the free shuttle up there. It leaves from downtown Vancouver. If you can't see the mountain that day, don't go up!

Wind Turbine? Waste of money, everything else is well worth it. Sunset on a clear day is special.

Some activities up top are included in the fare to ride the gondola up. They call the gondola "The Skyride." Your admission to the mountain is the gondola fare. Other activities charge their own admission fee once up top. The shows are included and they are fun.

Just to reiterate - the views are the star so if you can't see the top of Grouse from the city, don't bother going up. Also, you may get some snow up there, even in July

Hello,

This is Jake from the North Vancouver Visitor Centre. Yes, it's definitely worth going up there especially in the summer! There are tons of activities for the whole family. You can go on the chairlifts, see the grizzly bears, and even go zip-lining.

Instead of taking the gondola, you can hike up to the mountain if you want - Grouse Grind. It roughly takes about an hour to reach the top.

If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.

The shuttle bus is " free" if you have purchased your admission to Grouse Mountain. Buses leave from Canada Place.

Skip the wind turbine but do the chairlift ( on top of the mountsin..you get up on the Gondola) Shows including lumberjack and raptor are good fun.

Usually an attraction that talks about a shuttle will have that info in their website - Getting to .... How to get to .... Grouse Mountain has this information here: https://www.grousemountain.com/shuttle

You might be able to get your admission ticket to the coach and therefore the mountain from your hotel's concierge or front desk.
