Fifteen minutes from downtown Vancouver, North America`s largest aerial tramway carries visitors high up to a resort where they can find something to do any season of the year.

Grouse Mountain continues to expand its role as Vancouver`s premier four-season destination leading up to the 2010 Winter Olympics. This resort offers some of the most spectacular views of Vancouver, and its vibrance has inspired some of Canada best-known photographers to capture the sights and colors of the area -from the grandeur of the peak, to the thrill of a black-diamond run, to the entertainment of the Peak Chalet.
