The incident happened in the Romanian resort of Predeal as an instructor tried to lure the bear away from other skiers. Check out the video as it goes viral.
The instructor, Adrian Stocia, and his group came across the bear and waved their arms and made noises to frighten it off but that did not work.
He then edged out of the group.
“I slowly waved my arms, slowly moved out of the group and made the bear come after me as he was really close to the group,” he told ABC News International.
“I was just hoping that the bear would get tired and would go back to the forest.”
