If you’ve ever seen what happens to a car when it hits a moose on the highway, it’s brutal. I mean, consider the car totaled and hopefully, the driver made it out ok.
All that to say… there’s no need to experience it when you’re howling down a hill with a ski attached to each foot.
We’ve seen what the things can do to a vehicle, I don’t even want to imagine what could have happened.
Moose are a massive animal, they can weigh as much as 1,500-pounds. I don’t think anyone wants to run into even one half that size wearing only a light helmet for protection. Like hitting a brick wall… you would be broke all to pieces.
However, a skier from Sweden almost experienced this as he was flying down the hill, taking some footage of his day on the slopes.
Out of nowhere you can see a Moose run out of the shade of the trees, and in a split second the skier makes a quick cut and crashes into the snow for a tumble.
Skis fall off, he’s laying on his face… but he avoids the wreck.
You want a little extra adrenaline on your morning ski? Dodge some moose on the mountain.
