Skate on a breathtaking 8,000 sq. ft pond at Grouse Mountain’s Peak of Christmas


Peak of Christmas
Grouse Mountain

The Peak of Christmas returns to Grouse Mountain with its annual display of festive enchantment and fun activities.

While it is a great deal of fun to go snowboarding or skiing on the mountain, it can be just as much fun to simply soak in their holiday offerings.

For example, visitors may enjoy skating on a beautiful, 8,000 square foot mountaintop ice skating pond. While Vancouverites may enjoy outdoor skating at the Robson Square Ice Rink throughout the holiday season, the mountain view offers a decidedly breathtaking experience.

Described as “Vancouver’s north pole,” the area sparkles with breathtaking light installations, including a majestic light tunnel and illuminated reindeer. Guests may watch a family holiday film on a big screen TV in the sky, or even take a magical sleigh ride.

In fact, the price of a lift ticket gets you entrance to a litany of fun activities, including:

Santa’s Workshop: Meet Santa in person to share those holiday wishes.
Light Walk: Be awestruck by the glow of light against a majestic mountain backdrop. Walk amongst the fir and spruce around Blue Grouse Lake where stunning light installations bring radiance to the winter night. From a light tunnel to lanterns, marvel at the beauty as snow crunches under foot.
Sliding Zone: Get your snow carpet rental* and…slide! It’s the Sliding Zone, providing designated lanes and groomed terrain perfect for sliding. Whoosh! Perfect for the child in all of us. Snow level and weather permitting.
Mountaintop Sleigh Rides: Embark on a magical ride through our Winter Wonderland. Snow level and weather permitting.
Gingerbread Village: Stroll through and vote for your favourite sweet creation in support of BC Children’s Hospital.
Santa’s Reindeer: Meet Santa’s reindeer in the Reindeer Habitat next to Santa’s Workshop.
Reindeer Ranger Talks: Learn all about Santa’s reindeer at the Reindeer Habitat.
