Black Bears aren’t always black. They can range from black to brown and blond to cinnamon. They have a straight snout, with their highest point being at the rump instead of the shoulders (like a grizzly). A male black bear weighs between 18 and 250 pounds, with some reaching up to 400 pounds. A female Black Bear typically weighs between 120 and 180 pounds. Black Bears live on a diet of fruits, nuts, berries, insects, mammals and birds…and anything you leave around your campsite! (So be sure to read up on bear safety). Generally, Black Bears favor solidarity, and when they’re not hibernating, you’ll find them in the mountains…though it’s best to not seek them out. They can also climb trees very easily.

Yellowstone Country offers world-class winter recreation in deep, pristine powder, plus wildlife viewing, epic vistas and fabled small towns.
