The Grouse Mountain Skyride is a super cool way to get up to Grouse Mountain – in fact, it’s the only way without breaking your back hiking up the Grouse Grind.
But how long does the Grouse Mountain Skyride take?
Let’s find out.
How Long is the Skyride at Grouse Mountain
Grouse Mountain is one of the top things to do in Vancouver, so this ain’t no commute you’ll be begging to end – you’ll want to soak in the bird’s eye view of the city and mountains.
The Skyride trip takes just 8 minutes to climb the 2100 feet up Grouse Mountain.
Compare this with the two hour hike of the Grouse Grind and this is practically at light speed.
One final thing: as I mentioned in my post on how long to spend at Grouse Mountain, this trip can take a lot longer especially during peak Grouse Mountain summer and Vancouver winter periods.
