Grouse Grind Hike and High Ropes/Zip Lines Sept 28, 2022

This was the third year that Mouat Outdoor Education students decided to brave the steep confines of Grouse Mountain and tackle the Grind. While in previous years students were given a choice of what trip option they wanted to attend, this was the first year where the zip lines were available. 35 brave adventurers comprised of Mouat, Hansen, and district International students challenged themselves mentally and physically as they hiked up the difficult Grouse Grind. Once at the top students ate a quick lunch and them proceeded to embark on their chosen adventures. Some students chose to complete the high ropes course and, while harnessed, traversed through the tree tops on the mountain while experiencing small zip lines and challenging obstacles. The remainder of the students braved the 5 mountain top ziplines soaring over trees and canyons while being treated to some truly spectacular views of the Lower Mainland. Based on the smiles of the participants as they soared through the air I think there will probably be some repeat customers for this adventure as I know I can’t wait to try it again! Outdoor Education students (and anyone else who wants to) leave a 100 word response below.
