Skier Remains Insanely Calm During Close Encounter With Bear On The Slopes

Bear on the slopes

Alright, I’m starting to have some mixed emotions about bears now.

A few weeks ago, we posted a video of a bear mauling a ginormous moose… and now, I’m back to thinking that bears kinda cute, you know, when they’re not pulling a moose apart with their teeth.

A skier in Predeal, Romania, was recently capturing some footage on the slopes, when a bear comes trotting up towards them. The bear makes its way to the top with the skiers, and it looks like it’s just having a good time, evening laying down a few times.

Maybe he’s just trying to sun-bathe a little bit after kickin’ it in snowy woods all day.

But after a few minutes of recording, the skier begins to make his way down the slope and the next thing you know, the bear starts CHASING after him full-speed. Maybe he was just playing around, or maybe he was wanting to rip the skier’s face off, who really knows, right?

But what I do know is that I sure as hell wouldn’t be laughing the whole time like the skier was.

Like dude, you are WAY to calm about a bear being that close to you.

Granted, he’s not a huge bear, but look at those claws and tell me he still couldn’t tear your heart out.

Eventually, the bear has gives up chasing the skier, but just based on the tone of his voice, this dude wasn’t worried about it AT ALL.
