Boo The Bear Predicts Another Great Winter Ahead
Golden, BC – It’s bearly (sorry had to) the end of summer, and Boo is already preparing for winter. Lining up with the yellowing of the leaves on the trees for fall, Boo’s coat has started thickening as he’s been packing on the pounds, leading our local Grizzly Bear experts to believe winter will hit us early this year and be a snowy one! Similar to his prediction back in 2015 which held true to be an epic ski season with over 17 feet of snow and lots of powdery goodness, Boo is working the same routine this year. He’s been eating up to 40,000 calories a day, earlier than he usually does, to put on the proper pounds to survive his hibernation during the winter. Who needs the Farmer’s Almanac when you have Boo to forecast the winter weather?
Boo lives at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in the largest enclosed grizzly bear habitat in the world. Brought to the resort after having been orphaned as a cub, Boo was saved from certain death. Read more about Boo and the Grizzly Bear Interpretive Centre online.
