How often do you find something completely unexpected to happen with you? A skiing trip in Gulmarg took a rather different turn when these men spotted something on their way — a snow leopard. This rare and endangered species of animal surprised them when it made a surprise visit in the snow. Australian skiier Own Lansbury was on his first powder line ski when his guide almost ran over a snow leopard. The two stopped to observe the stunning creature huddled in snow and Own managed to film it.

The snow leopard stared at them and bounded towards his guide, Dave Marchi and then ran away disappearing into the forest. Watch closely and you will spot the leopard covered in snow, running away. A rare species, there are only about 4000 snow leopards left in the world out of which 500 are to be found in the Himalayas in India. Many wildlife enthusiasts have waited their whole life hoping to catch a glimpse of this rare yet stunningly beautiful animal but haven’t. Lucky for these two as they simply got a glimpse of it without even going looking for it. It made their day and it surely made ours! Watch the video below.
