Vancouver, Canada (July 11, 2011) -- Fourteen NYIT-Vancouver students raised the NYIT flag at the top of Grouse Mountain on Saturday, July 9. The two-hour hike, known as the “Grouse Mountain Grind,” spans nearly three kilometers and is nicknamed “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster” due to its steep incline.
Once they reached the top, the group enjoyed a picnic and scenic views of the North Shore Mountains of Vancouver's Pacific Range.
