When Does Grouse Mountain Ski Season End?

In short, the Grouse Mountain ski season varies on a year-to-year basis depending on weather conditions, snowfall, and operational factors.

So, how are we supposed to know when Grouse Mountain closes? Well, a quick glance into the past should give us a hint.

A look at the Grouse Mountain closing dates over the last five years gives us a great idea:

  • 2022 – May 1st
  • 2021 – May 15th
  • 2020 – March 16th (early closure due to COVID-19)
  • 2019 – May 2nd
  • 2018 – April 22nd

As you can see, Grouse Mountain usually closes for skiing towards the end of April or early May. So, if you’re visiting Vancouver in April, you should be laughing.

One final thing: especially during peak Vancouver winter, you’ll need to buy your Grouse Mountain ski lift tickets in advance to avoid huge delays on the gondola going up the mountain.
