The Peak of Christmas at Grouse Mountain (& a giveaway)

Be whisked mountaintop on the Super Skyride where you can enjoy the winter wonderland of The Peak of Christmas. There’s so much to see and do. Visit Santa in his workshop and have your photo taken, huddle together as you tour our mountain trails on a sleigh ride, visit the SOS Children’s Gingerbread Village and vote for your favourite creation, twirl on our 8,000 square foot mountaintop skate pond, decorate antlers and get a reindeer tattoo, take in the Holly the Jolly Reindeer Show or a Reindeer Ranger Talk (on most Peak of Christmas dates), or cozy up in the Chalet to enjoy Christmas classics in the Theatre in the Sky cinema.
