Winter is finally over and spring has sprung. This means that many things are coming back to life and out of hiding! Right now, bears in BC have starting to wake up from hibernation and you can watch them live. After a long winter snooze, these bears are ready to get back out into the wild and you can watch them as they come out of their hibernation right now on live video.
On April 2, 2019, two adorable bears poked their heads out of their mountain home to show us that winter is officially over. Grizzlies Grinder and Coola live up on Grouse Mountain in British Columbia.
These resident grizzly bears had a 128 day hibernation throughout the winter that began a few months ago on December 1, 2018. After a long winter nap, they are finally awake and ready to take on the world, and you can watch it all unfold on live video! This live camera shows Grinder and Coola as they take on their 5.5 acre summer habitat up at Grouse Mountain.
The bears first emerged from hibernation on April 2, 2019, to an excited crowd of people. The two cuties were greeted with rounds of cheers and applause as they poked their heads out for the first time in over 100 days.

According to Grouse Mountain, this is the duos' 18th hibernation period up at the mountain resort. They originally were brought to the mountain in 2001 after they were rescued. Both Coola and Grinder were orphaned during separate incidents in Bella Coola and Invermere, British Columbia.
These huge bears have been living at the Grouse Mountain Refuge for Endangered Wildlife reserve ever since and loving every minute of it. When they emerged this year, the first thing they did was head straight for the food. After that, they engaged in a quick wrestle session, then it was back to sleep with a nap.
You can watch these two grizzlies get into some serious antics on live video through the Grouse Mountain Refuge for Endangered Wildlife website now.
