Bears live in the aspen zone where we build our homes.
Natural food sources for bears are not at 11,000 feet, they are in the aspen understory..
Human-bear conflicts will increase when we leave food sources outside our homes.
Birdfeeders are a potent black bear attractant and draw bears to the windows of your home.
To report a bear sighting in Snowmass Village, please email Snowmass Village Animal Services or call 970-923-5330. The information that you provide is used to track their movement and behavior and will help keep Black Bears alive.
Wildlife sightings are part of mountain life; appreciate and respect an animal’s right to thrive.
