Wintertime is upon us at Walt Disney World Resort, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a great time to go snow skiing here in Central Florida. Just ask Liver Lips, Wendell and Terrance from the Country Bear Jamboree.

Those casts seem to stem from a bad attempt at skiing down Big Thunder Mountain Railroad – not the brightest crayons in the box now, are they? Even Melvin the Moose looks a little confused by the situation.

Look below for more posts about the Country Bear Jamboree:


  • Anyone else notice they all have broken legs?

  • That’s what Blizzard Beach was created for !

  • This photo is also historically interesting because the Country Bear Jamboree was originally created as the nighttime entertainment for a ski resort Walt was planning called Mineral King in Californa!

  • They look familiar. I think they were part of Miss Minnie’s Country Christmas which I saw in 1995.
