Photographer's Note

grouse mountain is a ski area and tourist attraction located in the district of north vancouver, BC. public access to the mountain is by aerial tramway, the grouse grind hiking trail, or the old grouse mountain highway (foot and bicycle access only). the moutain highway still exists and is currently only used for maintaining the ski areas.
the mountain was purchased from its original owners by the McLauglin family, who provided additional funding for the construction of the bedtram/super skyride in 1976. they purchased total ownership of the mountain in 1989 and constructed canada's first high definition theatre, the theatre in the sky, in 1990.
in recent years the mountain has become something of a tourist attraction as the area's dependence on skiiing has been eased by the addition of a 'native fish home', 'bear habitat' and high speed quad lifts, gondola as well as other attractions.
