VANCOUVER — Grouse Mountain, one of B.C.’s most popular ski resorts, is up for sale.
The CBC reports that after 40 years of being owned by the Vancouver-based McLaughlin family, Grouse Mountain Resorts has announced it is selling its operations and 485 hectares of property. The land, however, does not include ‘The Grouse Grind,’ the popular hike that leads up to the mountain.
Grouse Mountain brings in approximately 1.3 million visitors annually, and features 26 runs and four chairlifts. During the summer months, the resort offers a disc golf course and an open-air gondola.
The news comes on the heels of Colorado-based Vail Resorts’ purchase of Whistler Blackcomb last month for $1.4 billion.
According to Julie Grant, spokesperson for the Grouse Mountain, “it’s business as usual and our passholders.”
