You’re shredding the fresh powder in the breathtaking mountains of Romania. Then you hear a scream from above and look back and see a bear walking towards you. As you start to ski down, it starts running at you full speed.
Can’t imagine it, right? Or at least don’t want to.
And for some reason it seems to happen often in Europe too, we posted the snowboarder a bit ago and another skier too.
Well, this was the case for this skier, according to Ziarul de iasi. Skiers on the chairlift going back up were able to capture the whole thing on video.
The skiers filming the incident can be heard yelling to the man in the video.
“Come on, the bear is chasing you!”
“God forbid, don’t look back! ”
As he is skiing along he seems to realize what is going on.
That would certainly have the adrenaline pumping a little harder than your normal trip down the hill.
The man then ditches his bag to distract the bear. Apparently, it worked too, he is said to have made it safe and sound to the bottom. Split-second decision paid off well.
The same ski resort had a previous sighting of a bear cub crossing the road earlier that week.
It seems like an attraction draw, have a little ski trip and a Grizzly chase.
Authorities had been contacted about both sightings and had plans on trying to relocate the bear. They relocated one the year prior. Since it’s a reoccurring issue, you best be on guard if you go here…
When authorities approached the bear involved in the chase it ran away off the ski hill.
That makes your relaxing day on the slopes just a bit more stressful then it ever should be. It will certainly put a little hop in your step, you don’t want be caught moving slow there.
