    Fun afternoon
    Fun afternoon riding the Skyride gondola to the top of the mountain - wonderful views of the city below. Lumberjack show was fun. Got up close to two grizzly bears - man, they are huge! Had lunch in nice BBQ restaurant while birds of prey show was going on. Highly recommend for all ages, including kids.

    worth the trip.
    even though it was cloudy we enjoyed the day. the ride up was peaceful the ride down was not. School kids. It is ok it is a kids activity. The lumberjack show was entertaining and had partial views from the top but we were just too early. Would repeat as there is enough to do in a afternoon

    A great days activity when on a summer vacation in Vancouver.
    Having visited the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, out guided tour then took us up to the Grove Mountain Ski Area. We rode the Mountain Skyride for access to the top and found it all a great experience. At the top, we were able to purchase lunch (even if the prices seemed over the top) but wandered around to enjoy the views overlooking Vancouver as well as visit the 2 grizzly bears kept up there and went to the free lumber jack show which was entertaining with a real comedy theme running through it. Added to the morning trip to Capilano Park it made for a very good outing.

    A visit to Grouse Mountain is a must
    We had the most amazing time on Grouse Mountain. The gondola is an experience, you have to be prepared to be crammed in. We went to the first Birds of Prey show for the season, so the birds weren't allowed to fly, but they are quite majestic anyway. Seeing the young Grizzly Bears there was incredible. You can get reasonably close, if and when they come out. It was really cold up there, so you must be rugged up.

A really disappointing trip, wouldn't recommend travel up in the winter unless you are skiing.
We were highly recommended this as a must do trip when visiting Vancouver and we were really disappointed.
The ride in the gondola was really packed as people were crammed in with skies and equipment. Sadly not a relaxing ride.
At the top most things were closed because it was winter. Even the observation deck was closed. We visited the cinema to learn more about the mountain and the film being shown was about Iceland!! As the space wasn't manned by staff, kids were using it as a space to sit and chat away from watching adults. So we couldn't even watch the film being shown.
For the money, there was so little to do up there accept ski. The animal area was closed until June.
Sadly, an experience I wouldn't do again and couldn't recommend. When I look at what else we afforded on our trip, for the same price or less, it completely wasn't worth the money.
Ultimately a lot of money for an 8 minute overcrowded gondola ride.

When in Vancouver you will be amazed at the view from Canada Place across the Bay towards Stanley Park and The Lion's Gate Bridge. BUT in the far distance is Grouse Mountain, the city's ski area. Take the courtesy coach from Canada Place to Grouse Mountain via Stanley Park, The Lion's Gate Bridge and Capilano ( this is worth 30 minutes of anyone's time alone ) - a great free tour. The Skyride cablecar is not expensive, takes minutes to the summit where you will fine cafes, restaurants, shops, viewing platforms, AND MUCH MORE. How about, chairlifts, zip wires ( instruction school as well ) outdoor play areas, bear enclosure ( we saw 2 sleeping ), birds of prey demo and lumberjack show. All for the price of the Skyride ticket. Highly recommend . Enjoy.

$150 plus taxes for a 6 minute return trip on a gondola is absolutely ridiculous. Once at the top there’s not much to do anyway plus you’ll be paying more for mediocre overpriced food if you fancy something to eat. What a rip off.

The Skyride is how you get to the top of Grouse for activities and restaurants - less than 10 minutes by cable car. It's a pretty big car, and the views of Vancouver and the surrounding area can be stellar. However, you have to jostle for a downslope position at the window and the glass isn't exactly pristine, so it's more of an enjoy-the-view than a photo situation. Set your expectations accordingly.

I was so excited about doing this, having taken a tram up to a rotating restaurant in Albuquerque, NM years ago and remembering that wonderful experience.

This didn't compare. The tram was crowded, the windows were dirty so pictures weren't great. The restaurant wasn't doing outdoor service + it was wicked hot inside. The views were great and the bears seemed so depressed - overweight and lumbering in a rather small habitat. The bugs were awful and there wasn't much to see. Perhaps the day rides lead to a better experience.
