The video begins with the camera placed on the snow, when the snowboarder picks the camera up, glimpses of the black bear can be seen in the distance encroaching closer to the lady.The snowboarder fixes her camera using a selfie stick so it's looking at her face. The snowboarder goes further down the hill while casually humming to herself and snippets of the bear show that it's running at full speed behind her.

Eventually the snowboarder out paces the bear, the bear can be seen at the top of a hill stopping and giving up the chase. The snowboarder reaches the bottom of the hill unaware of what actually took place. You can only imagine her surprise when she looks back at the footage
