Grind Timer Program
Track your progress all winter long with the purchase of a Columbia Grind™ Timer, containing a radio frequency chip, from Grouse Mountain (or use your existing Grouse Mountain Summit Seeker Card). Swipe your card at the Grind™ Timer outside the Chalet, and again after completing the trail, and your name and time will appear on the monitor at Alpine Guest Services in the Peak Chalet. Your results may also be printed for you at Alpine Guest Services.
