July 7: Juvenile bear seen on Power Carve trail and under the Elk chairlift at Fernie Alpine Resort bike park

Bears have been seen throughout the bike park at F.A.R. This time of the year bears will be seen feeding on vegetation at higher altitudes.

Bears, like humans will choose the path of least resistance. They will use hiking and biking trails to travel so expect to see them.

Please report all bear sightings to staff at the F.A.R. bike park so they can inform the public. Please respect trail closures and do not approach or feed bears.
