Dam Mountain

North Shore Mountains, BC

Dam Mountain is a popular hiking/snowshoeing objective from the upper gondola station on Grouse Mountain. It’s higher and offers slightly better views than the namesake Grouse Mountain, but still, it’s nothing more than just a forested bump. I tagged this summit en route to the slightly-more-involved Goat Mountain on snowshoes, and all of the approach and return is written in Goat Mountain’s trip report. Here I’m only showing the summit views.
