Can You Drive to the Top of Grouse Mountain?

Grouse Mountain is Vancouver’s mountain playground. No matter how you get up there, it’s one of the most spectacular attractions in the country.

But can you drive to the top of Grouse Mountain?

Let’s find out.

⚠️ Warning ⚠️ – We’re now in high season. Lines for the gondola are long and you’ll likely have to wait several trips to get up – avoid this by booking no money down: Grouse Mountain tickets in advance.

Can You Drive Up Grouse Mountain?

I’ve got a short answer to this question, and it’s a very unsatisfying word: sort of.

Yes, you’ll be able to drive from downtown Vancouver to Grouse Mountain – but you’ll only get to the base of the mountain.

From here, you’ll have to park your car (day passes are $10.00) and take the Grouse Mountain Skyride up to the top.

This Grouse Mountain gondola takes takes just 8 minutes to climb the 2100 feet up.

The Skyride at Grouse Mountain costs the following:

  • Adults (19-64): $86.17
  • Seniors (65+): $75.40
  • Youth (13-18): $66.63
  • Children (5-12): $43.09
  • Toddlers (>5): free

This includes access to all of the top things to do at Grouse Mountain except for skiing and a few other paid activities.

Finally, as I mentioned in my post on how long to spend at Grouse Mountain, keep in mind that during peak Vancouver summer and Vancouver winter periods it’s not uncommon to have huge lines.

Multiple gondola waits (they’re in the process of upgrading capacity, but we’re years away) can be avoided by booking tickets in advance so you can walk right on.
