Encountering wildlife is an inevitable – and mostly welcomed – part of venturing into the mountains. While we're taught to avoid contact with predatory animals moose and bears, you don't normally think to worry about avoiding sheep.
I've never even heard of sheep hanging out around ski resorts, but this Russian snowboarder totally took this poor little guy out. This must be the winter for odd wildlife encounters on the mountain. A few weeks ago, a snowboarder was chased by a moose while riding in Jackson Hole.
Although it does seem like this is only happening to snowboarders... ha!
Just kidding—and thankfully it seems like both the sheep and the boarder ended up okay.
