Grouse Mtn Grizzlies - 2013

Let's go on up to Grouse Mountain this coming Sunday (yes, Father's Day!). It looks like fantastic weather for shooting Grizzlies!

NOTE: This event is very casual. You can come early or late, with friends and family or alone. If you want to meet others from the group, please note the times that we'll be gathering at the Wolf Pen (between 8am and 9am), and then again to shoot the Grizzlies at their feeding time (before or around 10am). Otherwise, you are on your own - or you can hang with the others.

What to expect

Meet at the upper parking lot, under the tram, about 8:00am for the "feeding of the wolves". Lots of good shots to be had there.

Then, head up the tram at about 9:00 or 9:15 to see the Grizzles who come out to eat before or about 10am and then go an hide and sleep for the rest of the day.

After the Grizzlies, there are bird of prey and scenery and landscape and trails to walk and shoot. There's a 45 min long lumberjack show, too.

How to get there

Drive to the upper parking lot and park and pay $5 to park for the day, or take the bus and catch the #232 Grouse Mountain Skyride bus from Edgemont @ Ridgewood Dr. bus stop.

Where to Meetup

At the Wolves pen under the tram at the upper parking lot at about 8am to shoot the wolves, then head up the tram around 9am (or you can do the "Grind" for free), and meet at the top for the Grizzly feeding.

After that, you can wander off on your own and do your own thing, or stick with the group and we'll choose what we want to do together. Will probably want to check out the Lumberjack show at noon, grab a bite and be finished by about 1 or 2pm.

Fees

It costs minimum $40 + tax for the Skyride tram - or if you want to go to the Peak it's $44 + tax, or to go to the top of the Eye of the Wind turbine it's $53 + tax. Bring more money if you want to buy lunch.

Note: there is a price break for 15 people minimum paying regular fare - so if there's enough interest then we'll arrange to meet at the pay booth and pay together at a specific time. Just a thought to keep in mind.

    It was a lot of fun. I haven't been up there in years, pre wolves and grizzlies, pre wind tower, and pre digital camera. Nice meeting like-minded people as well.

    Thanks to Peter for sharing his passion for Grouse and Grizzlies - quite infectious! It was a fun day. First time for me to see the Grizzlies up close and another highlight was going up to the top of the "Eye of the Wind" with its 360 view. The best part of course is spending time with others. You all are so nice and fun to hang with! :)

    Ok, change... We're going to shoot bears now as feeding will commence shortly, then up to the Peak afterward.

    Waiting at chairlift which opens at 10.

    Apparently bear feeding will be later, maybe 11 or later, so we're going up to the Peak at 10am for an hour or so.

    I have a few questions, but I would love to come. Who do I give the money to? I have not done this before. Do I also pay for the tram, entrance up top? I would like to bring a few lens and a tripod, do you know the distance? Injuries

      I believe you would pay as usual at the tram booth at the bottom and if enough of us show up together at the start of the walk we will qualify for a discounted price. I don't know what you are asking in regards to distance, but I will be bringing my fairly full kit...

      Thanks Rob. Carollyne, the tram fee is paid at the bottom, round trip. Distance is up to you. This is a very casual event - do what you want or hang out with others. I'm not sure what you mean by "injuries" but please read disclaimer on our About page: http://www.meetup.com...­

    Thank you so much but I will not be able to attend. I am sure you were just too busy on this beautiful day to get back to me. Next time.

    Anyone interested to hike up with their gears. To take the tram down one way is only $10.00 per person. However it is a quite challenging to do the 2.9 km vertical with all the camera gears within the 1 hour time between the wolves and bear feeding.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
