We were excited to see snow and the place where we would first see were at Grouse Mountain. This Peak of Vancouver was a last-minute stop while on our way to Whistler. It was Landon’s first time seeing snow, and he could not have enjoyed it more. We ended up spending about three hours there.

It started from the bottom and into a packed gondola that took approximately five minutes.

Once you get off the gondola, they offer many activities like ice skating, snow boarding, ski rentals, snowshoeing, and a fun sliding zone.

If the activities are too action packed, take the relaxing route with a nature walk! There are different trails to venture off into that are cleared.

It has been a few years since the last time we saw snow, so you could say our excitement was just as high as Landon.

This was the best photo we could find of Landon enjoying the slide! Look out for the vlog on our Youtube channel 🙂

Three hours later, we ended our little detour by sliding down a hill. (it is a lot more fun than it sounds) It is $5 per slide. To save money, only rent one slide and share it with your group. Take turns! With unlimited runs, it was well worth the cost. It is great family activity and a lot more exciting than it sounds. You are speeding down the mountain pretty fast.

Grouse Mountain is a perfect little spot to kill some time. It is the closest mountain to Vancouver; very convenient from downtown Vancouver. If you want to learn snowboarding/skiing before heading up to Whistler, it is entirely doable at Grouse Mountain. It is also a great place to see snow if you are in search of it, and in close proximity to Vancouver.
