Ah, to sleep for months on end… what a dream. Yesterday, Grouse Mountain revealed that their two resident grizzly bears, Grinder and Coola, have emerged from the hibernation after a whopping 171 days! In fact, that also makes this year the longest hibernation on record.
And their time at Grouse Mountain is nothing to shake a stick at, either. The two bears were first introduced to the mountain back in 2001, when they were rescued as orphans in Invermere and Bella Coola, respectively. The bears have been at Grouse Mountain’s Refuge for Endangered Wildlife ever since.

Of course, now that they’re out it also means you can see them once more! Luckily, visits to the Refuge for Endangered Wildlife are included with every Mountain Admission, making it the perfect option for a nice little spring or summer day trip.
Heck, you can even mix it into some end of season skiing! Grouse Mountain continues to be open for snowsports until May 15th, and their ‘Spring Fling‘ pass offers unlimited visits between now and then. Not a bad deal at all, if you ask us.
