Kicking Horse Mountain Resort - Grizzly Bear Refuge

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is home to the world’s largest enclosed and protected grizzly bear habitat. This Grizzly Bear Refuge is where resident orphaned grizzly bear Boo lives and plays. Visitors are given the opportunity, as part of a one-of-a-kind interpretive tour, to view a grizzly bear interacting much as they do in the wild; foraging, hunting, playing, swimming, snoozing and exploring. Held multiple times a day throughout the summer season, these tours are educational and interactive, allowing guests a unique opportunity to view this incredible animal and learn about the plight of this blue listed species.
