Grouse Mountain

North Vancouver, British Columbia View map

About

20 to 500 Guests

Imagine saying ‘I do’ on a mountaintop surrounded by alpine peaks, centuries-old forest and the sight of a million dancing lights in the city far, far below. From an intimate gathering to a spectacular party of 500+, weddings at Grouse Mountain are pure magic. Receptions can take place in summer or winter, outdoors under a marquis tent or inside one of our many reception areas, including Grouse Mountain’s grand Chalet. Happily ever after starts here.

Facilities and capacity

Grouse Mountain offers 9 venue spaces with beautiful Alpine features, rich wooden detailing, stylish décor and large patios with exquisite views. Whether you’re looking for an intimate reception space for 40 guests or a large outdoor event under the stars for 300 guests Grouse Mountain has something to offer. The Timber room, Altitudes Bistro and Lupins Café are the most popular venues on the mountain that can host from 50 to 150 guests for a wedding reception. Grouse Mountains outdoor locations such as the Mountaintop Plaza, Georgia Strait Lookout and Humming Bird Gardens offer guests a true mountain experience being in the nature and with surrounding views of Vancouver. The outdoor locations can host from 50 to 300 guests.

The perfect natural backdrop to a heavenly day.

Alpine peaks, a shimmering inlet and the stunning city could be your canvas. Adding the world-famous scenery of Grouse Mountain to your photographs will provide even more beauty to your celebration. Stand beside snow-capped peaks, kiss within a field of vibrant wildflowers or pose on the grassy area of the Georgia Strait Lookout to capture a panoramic shot of the entire city. Or the more adventurous can create their own view opportunities by arriving by helicopter or taking a leisurely chairlift to the Peak.

    Great comprehensive service, all-star experience in the venue with the best views

    Working with Grouse to plan the wedding was easy, friendly, and they accommodated and answered all of our many questions. They have great packages for weddings and as they have done so many weddings, they know what it is needed for you to have a great day. They took care of the venue, catering, drinks, decorations, music and it made us feel like pampered super stars. From the venue visits, the wedding rehearsal and menu tasting, each event gave us chance to meet with friends and celebrate at the top of the city. Spending our first night in the mountain-top cabin made our night even more special. I could not think of a more beautiful spot to gather our friends and celebrate our day. Our guests loved it, and they fell as if they have gone on vacations.

    Stunning views for an evening reception

    We had originally wanted a destination wedding, so when that didn't work out, we wanted to have our reception somewhere that would feel like a journey and a getaway. Grouse Mountain delivered exactly that! When you take the gondola up the mountain, it feels whimsical and picturesque! Like a place far far away from Vancouver. The staff was so kind and professional. My husband and I stayed in the Bridal Suite overnight on the mountain and really enjoyed that quiet time together. The food was incredible! Every guest commented on it, especially those with allergies since they were blown away by what they could eat (so much better than other weddings they said they had been to with limited gluten free, dairy free, nut free, etc options). The view is second to none, especially at night when the city lights illuminate the down below. I highly recommend this venue for their service and food.

    Great venue, great food and of course great view!

    Grouse Mountain was the first thing we thought about for a reception venue when we got engaged. However, we didn't actually look into it as we thought it would be far above our budget, but after asking around at a few other venues which all turned out quite expensive we asked Grouse for a quote. They were almost half as expensive as the rest of the ones we looked at were and very affordable. While they were also the venue that would look the best by far.
    We had booked the Timber Room which comes with a deck with a beautiful lookout over Vancouver. We were crazy lucky with the weather and had unlimited vision.
    As the weather was so good, it was really busy at the mountain, but they made sure that ourselves, the vendors and our guests could skip the line and get up and down the Skyride quickly.
    Liza was very patient with us and very helpful, especially when our date approached.
    The food. I can’t even begin about how amazing the food was. I think almost every single one of our guests mentioned how much they liked it. Some even pointed out that the cake, which was part of their buffet desserts, was just as amazing as the wedding cake we got at an actual bakery. Even the simplest things they had tasted absolutely amazing.
    Our family asked for a beamer last moment and Liza was super accommodating. We also decided last moment that we did actually want a toast and Liza made sure that it was arranged right away. We both would totally recommend Grouse as your wedding venue.

    Amazing venue

    It was really easy to organize the event on Grouse. We couldn't have asked for a more Vancouver location for our out-of-town guests. They even have a little bridal cabin up there where you can spend the night. We were able to take stunning pictures on the mountain. The wedding coordinator (Liza) was fast and efficient and made the process really smooth. The only complaint we had was the food. Grouse has to do the catering and the food was mediocre (average wedding food with above average prices). The alcohol was also a bit pricey. However, given the beautiful room (that needed little decor), private deck with the best view and amazing experience for guests, I wouldn't change the venue.

    Super Easy Wedding Day

    Grouse was quick to respond to our inquiry, work with our budget, and fairly flexible with our needs. We had a potential security issue with a possible gate crasher and Grouse already had a protocol in place - it was really awesome to know that my day wasn't going to be hijacked! We were able to hold our rehearsal on the mountaintop and have our bridal party attend a menu tasting. Our coordinator was so on top of things that nothing was forgotten. If I forgot to sign something or put an item in our timeline, she'd send me a quick email. She was happy to answer the random questions emailed at 2am, too.

    My only disappointment was that we weren't able to access the reception room until 4:30pm day-of to decorate. The ceremony was supposed to be at 3 on the deck. We moved the "I do" to later in the evening (with an amazing sunset at dinner!) and everything was fine. At the last minute, Grouse let us into the venue for 3:30pm so our friends could decorate and the bridal party wandered the mountain for some memorable photos at the bear habitat and in the snow.

    Ski & Snowboard Mountain Can't Handle Snow

    We are very disappointed writing this review. We very much wanted to have our wedding at this incredible mountain with the beautiful natural views and surroundings. We had seen photos and other outdoor weddings ceremonies that had happened here in the winter, and simply wanted to book that.

    However; that was not to be the case. If you are looking to book here outside of the winter months, do it. Stephanie, the event coordinator is lovely and engaging and you will love her. Unfortunately, other than Stephanie, this was not a good experience.

    We contacted Stephanie and scheduled our site visit for the Timber Room and the adjourning deck, as advertised in their brochure. During the site visit, we discussed the ceremony layout on the deck at length. We were able to explore the deck, as the snow had recently been cleared from it.

    At the end of the visit, there were a couple of follow up items that we wanted to know before booking, but given our conversations with Stephanie, they seemed minimal. One of them was a potential cost associated with clearing the Timber Deck. Something that was mentioned in passing and we were simply doing our due diligence before moving ahead.

    Upon waiting to hear back from Stephanie about the cost, she informed us that upper management was in the process of reviewing their snow removal policy and she would have to get back to us. Over 5 weeks later, after we put a hard deadline on waiting for an answer, we were finally told of the decision.

    The cost for snow removal on the Timber Room deck was going to be $2,000. Please note, this is double the cost of the rental fee for the Timber Room at $1,000. We were shocked. We have no idea how it could possibly cost this much money - even with multiple staff and a high hourly rate, taking into consideration fuel and depreciation for a snow removal machine, this seems extreme.

    We also couldn't understand why, if it does actually cost $2,000 for snow removal, that Grouse Mountain had removed the snow before our site visit. Just for kicks? At the time of our visit, all events had been banned due to COVID.

    As this snowballed from a passing comment to a whole policy change with an extremely high price tag, we have decided not to move ahead with this venue.

    It is a ski and snowboard mountain with other attractions. How could they not be properly equipped to remove snow? Surely they know their value is the natural beauty and incredible views, specifically from the deck.

    We recommend avoiding booking Grouse during the winter for your weddings if you are hoping to have an outdoor ceremony in the natural beauty. But please, if it's during the summer, do it - you'll love the deck and you'll love working with Stephanie.

    Grouse Mountain

    We had a truly amazing experience. Liza was super easy to work with and very accommodating. We received so many compliments the day of with how smooth everything was and beautiful. Staff were very attentive throughout the day, constantly serving guests whatever they asked for. The food was delicious, presentation awesome. Wouldn’t hesitate to book or work with them for another event. We are so happy we got married on top of a mountain overlooking the city we grew up in.

    We want to tell Liza Kenny and Renee how thankful we are for working with us! We made the right choice to pick the Grouse Mountain as a place for our wedding celebration!
    Our guests were amazed by how well everything was organized and really enjoyed friendly staff and overall organization.
    We got very lucky it was very sunny and clear! :)
    I can't imagine our wedding celebration without your help! Liza, you did a huge job for us and we appreciate it!

    Thank you so much my dear!

    We selected the altitude bistro for our September wedding. During the off season our contact up Grouse was very responsive to all of our questions and inquiries; however, once wedding season started we would have to wait 2 - 3 days before we got a response. However, the responsiveness did improve once our wedding date drew close. Our ceremony was on the altitude bistro deck and reception was inside the altitude bistro dining area. The view from altitude bistro was absolutely breath taking, and the food was amazing. We are so glad we selected grouse mountain as our venue; the day could not have been more perfect.
