Grouse Mountain is well worth a visit year round, especially on clear days when the views from the top are stunning. In the winter, people go for skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing, in the summer you can hike the mountain top area, visit the two resident grizzlies in their wildlife refuge, take in some of the seasonal entertainment and enjoy a nice meal on an outdoor patio.
As for how you get up the mountain, you can either take the scenic gondola or hike up the famous and grueling Grouse Grind.
