If I woke up to find dozens of skiers in my driveway, I’d be more than a little confused.

That’s how I imagine this black bear was feeling when it sprinted across the busy slopes of Tahoe’s Heavenly Ski Resort. While bears might scare the pants off most of us bipeds, it’s clear that this fella was just minding his own business upon encountering a strange pack of humans speeding down the powder.

“I was just waking up, looking for a spot to poop, and — bam! — the people came out of nowhere!” Or at least that’s what I imagine this befuddled bear was thinking as he raced to escape the skiers around him. Kudos to TikTok user @Tao7570 for capturing this moment of ursine antics.
