If you were wondering how fast moose really are, this video should help put it in context.
The answer is “fast enough to keep up with downhill skiers.”
Cheri, a snowboarder visiting the Breckenridge Ski Resort in the Colorado Rockies, took the video and posted it to Instagram. It’s been making the rounds ever since.
And for good reason!
Moose are fast. Probably faster than most people realized.
Cheri’s moving pretty good, and the moose is keeping up without much effort. It even overtakes her at one point!
In conclusion, don’t try to outrun a moose. Seems like they’re faster than you think.
