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

The winter wonderland features an 8,000 square foot mountaintop Ice Skating Pond, surrounded by snow-topped trees. 

Blue Grouse Lake twinkles with breathtaking light installations, and guests can stroll through a dazzling light tunnel with new additions including magnificent lit deer. 

Grouse Mountain notes that guests will also experience the "joy of witnessing real reindeer--only here at Vancouver's North Pole."

COVID-19 Considerations and tickets 

Sadly, the jolliest man on earth won't be on the mountain this year to spread festive cheer.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, organizers note that Santa wanted to keep in "tip-top shape for Christmas Eve" and he's made the decision to stay with Mrs. Claus and the elves instead. That said, the jolly man sent two of his own precious reindeer--Dancer and Vixen--to join in the festive fun. 

In line with its PureClean Commitment, there are a number of health and safety protocols in place for guests enjoying the Peak of Christmas. Face coverings are required inside all facilities as well as in areas where physical distancing cannot be maintained. 

These Peak of Christmas activities are all complimentary with a Mountain Admission Ticket, Annual Membership, Winter Season Pass, or Lift Ticket. 

Advance Skyride reservations are required with ticket purchase as well as for pass-holders accessing the Mountain.
