I had the "pleasure" of hiking the extremely popular Grouse Grind again over this past weekend. For those of you that do not know, it is located at Grouse Mountain ...also the spot where The Today Show has announced they will be broadcasting from during the winter Olympics. It was the first time that I had climbed it in a couple of years and the weather conditions were ideal for it. It typically takes between 1 and 1.5 hours to complete but is just an awesome overall work out. Once at the top of Grouse, some of the activities to do include, watching the lumberman show, seeing wild life, dining, paragliding, ziplines, helijet, chairlift, and additional hikes (fees may apply). When you are ready to call it a day, $5 gets you a pleasant ride back down the mountain on the gondola. I highly recommend, to all visitors to Vancouver, to schedule a day and do the grind. I certainly plan on doing it again soon. For all your Vancouver real estate needs, contact Dan Zlindra, Century 21 In Town Realty, 604 685-5951.
