Travel by 4x4 and head out in to the wilderness to search for black bears. Whistler and Blackcomb are home to approximately 50 bears who have adapted to live in these ski area habitats. Travel through forests and meadows and past streams and take short walks to the known bear feeding areas, rub trees and old trees where bears have hibernated during the winter.
Traversing the valley between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, the incredible PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola offers 360 views of the Coast Range peaks and mountain resorts below.
