Backcountry Skiing Tip: Avoid The Bears!

Posted on the 08 June 2011 by Kungfujedi @Kungfujedi
Here's a tip for anyone skiing the backcountry in the spring. Beware the bears! They're starting to wake up, and they're probably kind of hungry. Fortunately, David Wosner was well aware of this tip when he skied right up to a groggy ursine during a recent trip to Mt. Tallac, not far from Lake Tahoe. It was also fortunate that he was wearing his helmet cam at the time. Check out the video below.
Thanks to the Adventure Journal for sharing this one earlier today! Great stuff.
