Two grizzlies still hanging out on ski hill

Hikers urged to be cautious, carry bear spray, leash dogs in ski hill area

The two grizzlies spotted on the ski hill last week are still there.

Coun. Darryl Oakley says he spotted them on Tuesday evening near the T-bar hike.

“There were two grizzlies right by the Easter Chair, Oakley said. “I couldn’t see if they were male or female, they were above me about 200 metres. But they were definitely grizzlies, you could see the humps.”

Oakley says the bears were just foraging, but obviously have not moved on as you might expect them to after they were seen last week.

“Usually you seem them once or twice and then they move on. These ones have been there a while. Everyone hiking the hill should be really cautious, keep your dogs on a leash, stay in open areas so you have a good view of what’s coming up.”
