Hoping to warn others about the dangers of moose, this weekend a Summit County woman posted on Instagram a video she captured of one charging skiers and snowboarders Saturday at Breckenridge Ski Resort.
“You can’t plan for this kind of stuff; you can’t make this stuff up,” said local photographer Lauren “Lo” Drogsvold, who recalled riding up on a moose while making her way down Four O’Clock Run, about half a mile from where the trail splits off to return to the gondola.
It was about 2:30 p.m., Drogsvold said. She and her boyfriend were done riding for the day when they came upon a crowd of people clamoring over something. As she came closer to the cluster, she learned what all the fuss was about — a large bull moose standing on the run.
At the back of the pile, she watched as the moose stood for a moment by a resort sign, Drogsvold said, adding that she took out her cell phone to take a picture. After a few seconds, the moose began to approach the crowd.
