    1. Live Grooming Report for Mount Shark
    2. Be wildlife aware! Bears are coming out of hibernation, and bear spray is highly recommended. See the Wildlife Safety page for more information.
    3. If you are unaware of which trails have avalanche risk, please call the Kananaskis Information Line at 403-678-0760. Daily avalanche forecasts and snow plots can be found on the Avalanche Canada website.
    4. It's tick season and we recommend that if you are out recreating that you check yourself and your pets once your outing is complete. Since ticks take several hours to find a suitable site to penetrate the skin, they usually can be found and removed before they attach, however, if you've been bitten and experience fever, headaches, abdominal pain, a rash, nausea or vomiting, you should consult a physician and make him/her aware of the tick bite.
