You can find them on the mountainside munching away, across the golf courses lazing in the sun or even in the trees teaching their young to climb. So just what kind of bears are they? Black bears or, Ursus americanus. Don’t let the name fool you though, these bears aren’t just black, they vary in colour from black to light brown. They are smaller in size than BC’s other famous bear species, the Grizzly bear. The Black bear is a far more common sight in Whistler, with Grizzlies only been occasionally spotted in the backcountry - they prefer to stay far away from civilization. Although the bears share a common habitat, the two species split common ancestry over 5 million years ago.
A bus or a shuttle is your greenest option for getting to Whistler, the services reduce the amount of emissions more cars on the road would create. A bonus to taking a bus or shuttle is you can sit back, relax, and take-in the incredible scenery, the Sea to Sky Highway is rated one of the best drives in the world. If one of the services doesn’t work for you, you can look for rideshares or rent a car yourself and offer seats through websites like Hitch Planet.
Family Day is a relatively new holiday for Canadians, originally proposed in the 1990s it wasn't until 2013 that British Columbians celebrated their first official Family Day. The holiday was created to give everyone time off to spend with their loved ones between the large break in statutory holidays of New Years and Easter.

Katy Perry is soaring to new heights…literally. The singer has been enjoying some time-off of her Prismatic World tour, which picks back up in September, and decided to spread her wings and fly…with the help of a zip line. Katy posted several videos on her Instagram of her latest adventure, the first being a slow-motion clip of her gliding through the forest, as R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly” fittingly plays in the video.
