Triple bear-y cool sighting from chairlift at California ski resort

Nolan Brown couldn’t believe his eyes. And, if he didn’t take the video to prove it, it’s quite likely nobody would believe it, either.

As he was sitting on the chairlift at Heavenly Ski Resort recently, Brown spotted three bears plowing through the snow and straight across a ski run.

“Been skiing @skiheavenly my whole life, never seen anything like this,” he posted on Instagram Dec. 10.

“From the family bears and the fog covered lake to the sun peaking over the mountain on first chair, it solidifies this place as most beautiful,” he wrote.

He’s not wrong.

What a way to kick off the ski season in Lake Tahoe.

But hopefully the bears go to sleep soon. California dreaming, indeed.
