BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. – Two friends making a run at Breckenridge Ski Resort were joined by an unexpected guest Friday morning, and the incredible moment was all captured in video.

Cheri and her friend, Amy Loofa, were snowboarding in the mountains when Cheri turned around to make sure Amy was still behind her – and that’s when they both realized something else was happening.

Both saw a moose trekking down the front side of the mountain and Cheri was afraid to stop in the middle of an open run while strapped to her snowboard, “so she kept moving to get out of the animal's way,” according to ABC News.

In the video below, you can hear as one of them screams. “I don’t know where to go!” as the moose darts right past her just a few feet away.

Watch the video below (warning: contains strong language).

No one was hurt, according to resort officials who spoke to the Associated Press. The encounter is a good reminder that skiers and snowboarders share the mountain with wildlife, officials added. 

In late December, a rare lynx strolled nonchalantly across the Purgatory resort in southwestern Colorado, walking through a crowd of skiers and snowboarders who stopped to take videos.
