Grouse Mountain- The Peak of Christmas

The Peak of Christmas, on Grouse Mountain, is one of Vancouver’s favourite holiday traditions. Ryan Lowe and City Lights are up at snowy heights to discover why.

After making a bee-line straight to Santa’s lap to garner the  promise of a new snowboard, Ryan learns that there are many more attractions up on Grouse Mountain during the holidays, not only for the kiddies, but for visitors of all ages.  There are some real pulls up here on Grouse Mountain; one can visit Santa’s workshop, look in on the real reindeer, or rent some skates and take to the huge 8,000 square foot ice skating pond, unaided or with the help of figure skating world champion Karen Magnussen. There are eight choirs over the month, the S.O.S. Children’s Parade of Trees, and Grouse Mountain shows all the classic Christmas movies in their Theater in the Sky. The children can participate in Breakfast with Santa, “a time for children to have breakfast with their favourite person really,” says William Mbaho, of Grouse Mountain Resorts’ PR & Communications team. When enough snow has fallen, sleigh rides will also become available, taking riders through the beautiful alpine forests. 

All of this is running until the 24th of December, with some of the events continuing on through the season. With a fresh daily dusting of snow, there’s no excuse not to rug up and get up the mountain to enjoy a true winter wonderland. Visit for more information.
