Watch: Bear walks by unaware skiers in Whistler

Bears are still out and about. Be sure to stay alert and give them space.

In addition to excited skiers and snowboarders going up the gondola for an early season run, Squamish's John Knicley spotted a bear this morning (Nov. 27) near the upload for the Excalibur Gondola in Whistler. 

This is a good reminder that cooler weather doesn’t necessarily mean bears are hibernating in the Sea to Sky. 

If you spot a black bear, keep your distance, keep dogs on a leash and remove any attractants.

Watch the below video for more tips and information on how to behave in bear country.
