Starting tomorrow and running through December 24, Grouse Mountain presents, a Peak of Christmas. Though a bit of a more expensive family activity, $79.95 gets a family of four (two adults and two children) access to access to the Skyride, Holly the Jolly Reindeer show, antler making, sleigh rides, Gingerbread Lane, mountaintop ice-skating, Santa’s Workshop and more festive fun.
