Grizzly bear crossing a stream (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Approximately fifty black bears wander through the coastal hemlock-cedar forests around Whistler.
Bear-watching tours provide the opportunity to watch the bears in their natural environment, while getting to know their personalities and even their names.
Most bears keep their distance from urban areas. However, each year there are reports of black bears investigating Whistler’s Village and subdivisions in search of food: garbage, birdfeeders and other attractants.
Residents and visitors are encouraged to be “bear smart” to prevent backyard bears, and to use the special bear-proof garbage bins located throughout Whistler.
