“This moose snuck up behind us on the Gulf of Slides ski trail on the way up. He was pretty calm yet cautious of us.”

This pair of backcountry skiers in the White Mountains of New Hampshire had a hair raising wildlife run in and the entire encounter was captured on a GoPro. They handled the situation well and gave the moose plenty of room to pass by peacefully. Not sure what the protocol would have been if this bull had charged but I’m guessing I would have pointed them downhill and hoped I could ski faster than it could run.
