This entertaining family event is not to be missed!

The Grouse Mountain Lumberjack Show features champion performers showcasing their skills in an outdoor set of two logging camps from the early 1900s. Johnny Nelson from the Green River logging camp battles Willie McGee from Blue Mountain to determine the top lumberjack. The 45-minute show offers fast paced entertainment and features log rolling, a 60-foot tree climb, two-man peg and raker saws, axe throwing, and an exciting springboard chop. Lumberjack shows are held daily at 12:00 PM, 2:30 PM and 4:30 PM from mid-May to October. Access to the Lumberjack Show is included with the Alpine experience ticket and annual membership. The shows are weather dependent.
