About

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.

More than we could have ever asked for

The team at Grouse went above and beyond on every detail to make our wedding day magical.
Beth assisted us in every way possible to plan and execute the more beautiful day. There really was no stopping her from doing everything possible to make our day exactly what we wanted.Laura was an amazing asset to ensure everyone got down the aisle and things ran smoothly. My family can not stop talking about how much they loved these two!
The food was out of this world, not a single person could stop raving about how excellent everything was from salad to dessert we had the perfect meal.

With some of the snowiest days of the season, and unpredictable weather the grouse team went so above and beyond to get us up the mountain, around for photos and ensuring all our guests got home safely

Thank you for everything!!
If you're even slightly considering it, have your event at grouse you will not be disappointed

Beautiful but poorly handled

Our wedding was beautiful at this location but the stress made it a lot less enjoyable. Do not want to use this review to rag on anyone so all I will say is that this venue is very inflexible for events and is not always transparent with the cost. I would like to say that one of their banquet managers, Stephanie, was absolutely incredible. They made sure our wedding day was taken care of and so special.

Amazing Coordination from Beth

We had our wedding in the Timber Room this past August. We first started coordination with Carly, but were introduced to Beth when we had our food tasting, and she took over from Carly after that. She was very organized, so it was easy to communicate with her. The day after the wedding, she even hand delivered the wedding cake leftovers we had forgotten to take back. Our guests certainly agreed that the food was delicious, and people couldn’t believe that it kept coming! We thought the venue looked just right as it was, and decided not to decorate.


It ended up being very foggy up there on the day of, but it actually made for amazing pictures like none we had seen before. We could hardly believe it when the clouds parted just at the right moment during our vows.

We’d recommend Grouse without hesitation to anyone getting married.

The most perfect location

Everything about our wedding was perfect. The staff at Grouse met everything we wanted and made it so easy to get married there! They put us first and made us feel so special. And I got a picture of me in me wedding dress with the BEARS!?! What more can you ask for! I cannot recommend them enough. Their payment services were great and the costs where so clear so no hidden surprises! Thank you for making our day incredible

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.

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.

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.

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.
