The Snow Shoe Grind is a steep climb towards Dam Mountain. If you don't have a Grouse Mountain pass then it is $39.95 plus tax to ride up on the sky ride. You must have snow shoes & micro spikes are required. Poles are handy. After your ride up go down the stairs and follow the orange SSG signs through a few easy trails and then your climb up starts. There are some steep sections but they are short. As you get to the top the last section is very steep with a drop off. Be careful here. Once you pass that you have arrived at your destination.
It's just 4.3 Km's and you can add a couple of trails at the top to make it a few Km's longer. You can get a SS'ing trail map at guest services. Should you decide you want to SS again return to guest services and buy an annual pass. Keep your ticket as you have a week and they will take off your day lift ticket.It comes with many benefits.
