Black bear

Bear Aware

At the Whistler Sliding Centre we are privileged to be veryclose to nature, sharing the venue with all kinds of wildlife, including bears. While bears may seem cute and cuddly, they are still wild animals and we want to keep you and the bears safe.

If you see a bear...act responsibly.

Never feed a bear: either intentionally or unintentionally. All garbage must be disposed of in bear-proof containers. In Whistler, it’s the law! Bear-proof containers are located throughout the venue!

Give them plenty of space and never approach them: No one should ever feed, pet or pose for a photo with a bear. Take pictures with a telephoto lens from a distance.

Remain calm. In most cases, the bear will flee. If the bear is still a distance away, maintain a
respectful distance and detour around the bear.

Avoid surprising a bear. Make your presence known by talking, singing songs, or calling out every once in a while. Stay alert. Look ahead on the trail and keep children nearby.

Notify Guest Services. If you have concerns about bears on the venue please feel free to contact us.
