How scary does this sound !
But that is what the real adventure that pumped all blood vigorously when Aussie Owen Lansbury, his skiing tutor Dave and Hotham ski patroller Bill Barker from Bill Trips in Gulmarg were trailed by a snow leopard which made 3 of the skiers run for their life.
“OK – so the story is we skied our first powder line and the guide in yellow almost ran over the leopard” said Owen on his Facebook page.
“I stopped just as it huddled in the snow, where it stayed for about a minute checking us out. It then let out a solid roar and bounded away down the slope towards Dave, but scooted off into the forest, where we think it probably had a kill stashed. Pretty amazing experience!”
”And one more for the obsessed (that’s me). Look at that cat stalk it’s prey! Here kitty kitty kitty” Owen on mike to the people.
