This year, we visited The Peak of Christmas at Grouse Mountain for the first time. We had fun playing in the snow and visiting the attractions.
When we first arrived and saw the snow, it was a wondrous sight for my son. We just played and played in it.
Then we checked out Holly the Jolly Reindeer Show while my husband stood in line to see Santa.
Can you guess which of Santa’s reindeer this is?
Unfortunately it was a busy day and we were in line for over an hour and a half before we got to see our white bearded friend. My son is so adorable and so shy that he couldn’t even speak to Santa. I wasn’t much better. I couldn’t think of anything to say when he asked me what I wanted except a pair of diamond earrings. I don’t even wear earrings!
Then it was off for hot chocolate and a reindeer cookie at the lodge. I would have taken a photo of the cookie if we hadn’t inhaled them so fast!
Checking out the gingerbread displays.
I’m glad we experienced The Peak of Christmas. Definitely our favourite thing was just playing in the snow. If I had to do it again, I think we would skip the visit to Santa just because it took so long standing in line and we didn’t have time to do everything as a family including the outdoor skating which looked like fun. I have heard that Breakfast with Santa is a fun family event too but it wasn’t available the day we went.
I just found out there is a special family rate available for Peak of Christmas activities – it costs $79.95 for up to two adults and two children/youths for admission. You will have to decide if it fits in your budget or not.
Thank you to Grouse Mountain for the complimentary tickets! The Peak of Christmas is open until December 24.<
