Grouse Mountain's skiing may not come close to that of Whistler's, but in both winter and summer it still proves a great spot to visit. The view across Vancouver is beautiful, and the sunsets are amazing. It has several restaurants in its chalet, ranging from the 5-star Observatory to the more casual Altitudes Bistro to Lupins Cafeteria.
In the summer the mountain has shows, hiking, scenic chairlifts, zip-lining, paragliding, and the Grizzly Bear habitat. Winter sees an ice-skating pond, skiing, snowshoeing, and Christmas events. And of course, all seasons will have the great views.
