Just 15 minutes from Vancouver’s downtown core, is the vast alpine playground of Grouse Mountain. If you are up for a challenge, you can try the Grouse Grind. Affectionately called “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster,” this is a 1.8-mile trail featuring thigh-burning 2,830 stairs that take you 850 meters up the mountain. Alternatively, take the iconic Red Skyride, which gives visitors and locals alike the opportunity to see the jaw-dropping scenic nature of B.C. unfold in front of them during the 8 minute ride from the Valley Station to the summit. At the top is a chalet with ice cold drinks, a vast selection of dining options and spectacular views of the city. From hiking and zip lining in the summer to snowshoeing and ice skating in the winter—plus amazing shows in the theatre in the sky and grizzly bear visits in between—Grouse Mountain is Vancouver’s most popular tourist attraction that is truly an all year-round destination.
