Big Ole Grizzley Bear Comes Out of Hibernation

We were extremely fortunate to capture Boo’s 20th emergence from his den!

We ask that all guests please stay quiet when going over the enclosure in the gondola and when skiing by the Bear Refuge on Lower Wiley Coyote. Boo is currently transitioning from his dormant state to a phase we affectionately call “walking hibernation” – where his body is reversing the dormancy process. We are doing our best to keep things calm and quiet to give Boo what he needs to comfortably transition into his normal state.

Boo will be ready to greet guests up close and personal this summer! Stay tuned for our summer operating hours and Boo’s 20th Year; we have some exciting plans for the big guy this year that we are excited to share with all of you!

Honestly just a super interesting visual I wanted to share with yall. 

In the spirit of spring coming, I think this bear coming out of hibernation is an amazing symbol. Winters can be tough but coming out strong is the mindset we need moving forward.
