We've been having some beautiful weather in Vancouver lately. So, I decided to head up to Grouse Mountain on Friday evening to cap off a long work week with a group of friends. We decided to take the Skyride up to the top of the mountain. I have been on the Skyride countless times, but never tire of the amazing views. We had a great dinner in Altitudes Bistro in the Peak Chalet. Every Friday night, they have free concerts in Altitudes (the night we went, a fab local musician named Paula Toledo was playing), so it was a real treat to spend an evening up there. After dinner, we worked a few of those calories off by skating on the mountaintop ice pond. It's the only outdoor rink left in Vancouver and while it isn't very big, it is still a ton of fun. I only wish I had enough time to ski that evening too... the conditions are fantastic.
