The big black mama bear and her cubs.

As a skiier, it is never a good sign when ski patrol is gathered in droves and many onlookers gather. Well, this past weekend, given that it is April and on Sunday it was very warm, the bears are coming out of hibernation...literally.

We could only get so close, but there was a big Mama bear and her cubs gathered by the base of thier tree. They were absolutely breathtaking. It was such a neat moment...until all the knucklehead teenagers tried to go after them...SCARY!!!
Don't those young kiddos know about Mama's protecting thier babies...CRAZY!!!! Hope you can get a glimpse, I know they are kind of far away.

Great pictures of the slopes and bears. Looks like a great get away week-end.

That's really neat! Were those teenagers INSANE? Don't they know that bears coming out of hibernation are hungry?
