Several weeks ago we bought an annual family pass to Grouse Mountain. Gary and I had an amazing snowhoeing date and with sunny skies this weekend we decided to go up with the kids. I was nervous that it would be too cold or that they would be tired of the snow due to the fact that we've had it around for about a month now. We were pleasantly suprised with their positive attitudes and how easily they were entertained!
There are activities for the kids on the mountain aside from the skiing such as sledding and skating but we didn't even get to them. We played in the Light Walk area where the kids just climbed hills and did penguin slides down. They made snow angels and wrote their name in the snow. There was ample wrestling, runnning and rolling. We did do the sleigh ride and will have to hit up the sliding area and skating next time we go! The highlight for several of the kids was the gondola (if you're claustrophobic, watch out--they pack you in!) and I just loved that we experienced sunshine and warmth.
Here are some photos from our day...
Next year we hope to get our kids into skiing lessons so if you have any advise on local mountains and ski programs, please let me know! Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
