Grouse mountain is front and center in the Vancouver mountain scene and has something for everyone. This is good if you are trying to attract as many visitors as you can to a mountain, but not so good if you are looking to avoid crowds and get some fresh tracks. The one thing that sets Grouse apart from the other two North Shore mountains is that you do not have to drive up a mountain road to reach the base of operations. Instead, you take a high speed gondola right from the base of the mountain, making it the only mountain in Vancouver accessible by public transit. If you don't have a car and don't want to hitchhike this is your only option.

384 metres of vertical puts Grouse in the middle as far as shreddible vertical on the North Shore, but you will find the terrain is a bit different than the other two hills. The lower front part of the mountain is a wide open swath cut into second growth forest with little to no tree skiing, but is home to what is usually the best park of the three local hills. The upper part of the mountain is steeper, more trail like and provides good tree skiing in numerous spots.

About half way between Vancouver and Calgary, and just off of Highway 1, is the city of Revelstoke, dam of Revelstoke, and ski resort of Revelstoke. They like the name Revelstoke in Revelstoke, and apparently some of them like skiing and snowboarding as well. This resort uses high speed lifts to access a large amount and variety of terrain, making it one of the best advanced ski areas in BC. [ Read More ]
This big mountain rarely disappoints, unless of course you trash your gear on some early season rocks. The upper parts of the mountain are gnarly, with steep chutes everywhere off the top ridges that throw you out into wide open bowls. Once you get out of the alpine you will find decent tree skiing, quite a few groomers and a lengthy cat track that can have some fun features off the edges. The ba... [ Read More ]
