Bear Aware no more?

Bear Aware no more?

As with most small mountain towns in BC, Rossland sits squarely in and is surrounded by prime real estate when it comes to our big black friends in the forest. While certainly not desired, it’s not entirely uncommon to see the occasional black bear strolling through town. Rossland has been perhaps lucky over the past number of years to have not had any major bear/human interactions to have resulted in injuries. One probable cause contributing to that and to reducing bear/human interactions in general has been the hard work of the Bear Aware society.

Inagadadavida Trees at Red - Andrew Zwicker Photo

A local man passed away last Friday on Red Mountain. This was the first death of the year on the ski hill.

On Friday, January 15th, 65 year old Gordon Earnest Reeve from Castlegar was up on the hill skiing with friends in the Paradise area. While coming down through the trees in the “Inagadadavida” trees alongside Southern Belle, he became separated from his group. His friends waited at the bottom of the Paradise Chair for him to catch up. When he didn’t show up they went back up to look for him and found him part way down the run in a tree well.

Bobsled races back on...for now, and with special guests!

Quite possibly the most unique, fun and old-school extreme events in town, the annual Spokane Street homemade bobsled race has been brought back from the brink of extinction. Last year, following a lack of cooperation from spectators on keeping the course clear and some hassling of volunteer course workers, the safety of the event was called into question and was cancelled.
