Grouse Mountain closes due to high winds
Mountain closes Friday afternoon for the night but plans to reopen Saturday at 8:30 a.m. PT
Grouse Mountain announced Friday afternoon it was closing for the night due to "high winds and inclement weather."
The mountain made the announcement on its website and said it would reopen Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m PT, "with fresh powder."
The SkyRide gondola that accesses the ski hill and winter recreation area at the top of the mountain is still operating, but only to let people off the mountain for the night.
The resort occasionally shuts down the gondola when there are high winds.
In December, partygoers on Grouse were trapped overnight when 100 km/h winds forced the shutdown of the main gondola.
