Closure of B.C. campgrounds due to 'problem bear' extended through the weekend
Multiple campgrounds that were closed in a B.C. park due a food-habituated bear last week will remain closed through the weekend.
I like the solution. Ya got all these problem humans troubling the bears, ya ban the humans.
Makes perfect sense.
When I worked the Whistler Keg in 86 a bear tore the extra robust wooden enclosure around the grease dumpster to shreds in under 30 seconds. The bear got dosed and flown to deep into Garibaldi.When I started skiing Whistler the local garbage dump was near the present day village . Always lots of bears hanging around . Bears are nothing new in that neck of the woods .
Yup that was the beginning of the great boom . Blackcomb opened in 87 if memory serves . I had to quit skiing in 86 and one of the last time we were offered a twenty dollar helicopter ride for guided skiing on the new mountain . Sadly we passed .Yup. Moved it to Function Junction. In 86 there was only 1500 residents. 2 cop cars and 2 taxis.
It must have been the 85/86 season that I remember it was prior to Village lifts , the helicopter was at Creekside . We were the guys wearing the Beaver Patrol hats . Direct from Girl Guides .Blackcomb was already open in 86 but ski seasons wise it could have been the 85/86 season that it opened. The village chair was 86/87.
One of my neighbours in Emerald was a pilot for Pemberton something named at that time. We were on Pinetree across from the mushroom house and 5 or 6 houses from the tramhouse were Boyd and crew lived and partied hard. I've met a Trudeau at Boyd's don't remember which one. Oh well, that's MDMA for ya.
We had the A-Frame on Alta Lake Road directly across from Creekside . Party central .It must have been the 85/86 season that I remember it was prior to Village lifts , the helicopter was at Creekside . We were the guys wearing the Beaver Patrol hats . Direct from Girl Guides .
