With an express gondola accessing over 4100 ft (1260m) of vertical, you’re bound to ski and ride an impressive feat of terrain comparable to only that of heli-skiing. Coupled with summer activities such as mountain biking, wildlife education, and alpine sightseeing, this is a place where the stories are almost too tall to believe. « less

I have been following the antics of Boo Grizzly on facebook for some time through his wonderful photos & could not wait for the opportunity to meet him in person. I was not disappointed. What a beautiful bear. He is an exceptionally charismatic bear. I am not a fan of wild animals being confined or the use of animals for... More

We took the cable car to the top and then walked along the ridge and in a loop back to the top. When we started we were well above the clouds and they disappeared as we walked. The maps given out by the resort are rubbish and we ended up walking several kms longer than planned and climbing several hundred... More

Views galore, nice furniture and finishes but walls can be a little thin. Clean and well maintained Lodge unit that overlooked the valley.

We spent almost an hour with the tour guide and learned a lot about bears. We got to see Boo for about 15-20 minutes and we must say he looks great. We're not fans of containing animals, but we are huge fans of refuges. The most important part of this tour is the knowledge it imparts about grizzly bears. Add... More

We enjoyed the views of the mountains and the valley and especially loved seeing 'Boo' the grizzly bear! One of the highlights of our trip!

We were staying in Golden and decided to go and see Boo the Grizzly bear. Boo lives in a 20-acre enclosure where he has plenty of room to play, forage and enjoy dips in his pond. Boo is 11 years old and weighs around 275 kilograms. The cost of visiting Boo and the gondola ride is $ 45.95 in summer.... More

We didn't stay at the resort, we just visited for the mountain hikes and Boo. After seeing the place though, we would love to return and stay during ski season. These look like some of the best slopes I've seen, and apparently they get a really deep coverage of snow. That aside, the hikes across the ridges, and down the... More

We were only here for 2 days, but while we were there it was wonderful. The condo's are really nice and new. The staff is great as well as the view. The only thing that wasn't that great was the bed :( It was small and not real comfortable.

The staff at the saloon were very friendly and the selection of beer, wine and food was surprising. It was a great relaxing afternoon.
