We're ready to celebrate our papa bears with a fun-filled Father's Day Weekend on the mountain. The warm weather should be perfect for all the outdoor activities and events we have in store. From a special Father's Day menu at the Lake Club to a live music celebration at The Point, there's something for every dad to enjoy. All that and more in this week's Bear Prints!

Be sure to attend our monthly Homeowner's Luncheon next Friday, June 24th. We'll be announcing an exciting new addition to our activities program that outdoor enthusiasts won't want to miss. Can’t be there in person? Join us on Zoom (meeting ID: 361 350 9732). 

In recent weeks, we have seen a noticeable increase in bear activity around property compared to recent years. We urge everyone on property to stay vigilant and follow all necessary precautions. This includes disposing of all trash properly and ensuring trash bins are locked. Thank you!
