Sorry, it looks like no Euro Bears (a smaller variant of the American Brown Bear) will be there. Do not despair. It has taken me at least 5 years before meeting any (Lisa and Mark in 2005) and then another 2 full seasons before skiing again with one 8Prickly last december). Granted, I've had my share of problems getting to the hills or I would have met some more
Anyhoo I guess you can't wait to be there...c'mon only 48 hours to go!
