Sleep is for the weak at Grouse Mountain's 24 Hours of Winter

The Torch Parade at Grouse Mountain will take place Saturday, Feb. 11.


Those pesky circadian rhythms are always getting in the way of a good time – but you can defy nature's clock and sate your round-the-clock desire for outdoor adventure at Grouse Mountain's 24 Hours of Winter.

From Saturday morning until Sunday night – including all of the wee hours in between – you can ski, board, snowshoe, and dine without the clock telling you it's time to stop.

Activities include sunset snowshoe treks, sunrise tours of the Eye of the Wind, zip-line treks, a junior pond hockey tournament, a late-night snowboard jam, midnight ice skating and ski-in movies on a giant outdoor screen.

And even if your sea-level dance card is full, make sure to look up the mountain at 10 p.m., when you'll see dozens of torchbearers descending the main run in a glowing torchlight procession.

Grouse Mountain's 24 Hours of Winter runs Saturday morning until Sunday night. For more info, visit
