Imagine skiing down a run straight into a grizzly bear? Don’t laugh it could have happened to you if you were skiing at Lake Louise in Canada this week.
Local grizzly, Olivia, a long time summer resident of the region woke for spring and took a few turns on some ski runs on Tuesday on Pine Cone Way, Wiwaxy and Cameron’s Way.
The resort was shut down for a few hours while she had her fun and skiers and boarders were evacuated via the gondola.
So this happened at Lake Louise on Tuesday."We had an impromptu visit … from one of our summer inhabitants who enjoys the snow as much as we do," said the resort in a release.Read more about the bear affectionately known as Olivia: www.cbc.ca/1.3549306

“She was running up and down the runs all over the place having a great time,” said resort spokesperson Dan Markham as reported by CBC news.
Olivia left some impressive footprints too.
