Why Grouse Park? The reason why I come back to Grouse Mountain every year is because it’s like a second home to me and I don't have to worry about riding by myself because there is always a friend riding around the mountain. The park crew are awesome people to ride with when they are not busy maintaining the park and doing such a good job hosting the park jams. They are always putting together an amazing set up to ride even in the worst conditions.
