JACKSON, Wyo. — Corn snow and slush aren’t the only signs of spring at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
Local skier Max Martin captured this curious bear from just above the Sweetwater mid-station, near Solitude Station. It’s perhaps the first bear sighting in the valley, second in the area — Yellowstone National Park spotted one on Monday.
This is right on time for bears to start waking up. The first bear of 2019 was spotted March 8, just a day after 2018’s.
On Bridger-Teton National Forest land, JHMR has always shared a home with wildlife. Should you see this bear, or any other wild animal, keep your distance. JHMR also asks guests to report any wildlife sightings to patrol — there’s a convenient “call patrol” button on the JHMR Insider App. Remember, bears are hungry right now, and wild animals are, well… wild.
