An incredible and unbelievable video taken at one of Georgia's ski resorts, located in the country’s most remote region, went viral on the internet. While skiing in Mestia ski resort of Svaneti a professional Georgian skier and First Red Bull athlete in Caucasus named Iva Tsiklauri came across  real bear cubs roaming in the snow. As it can be seen from the video the bear cubs were very curious and
even tried to play with their new acquaintance. This footage by Iva Tsiklauri ,published by the Youtube Channel named Gudauri Freeride Tours, caused great excitement among the social media users. It is not clear how the Lil bears appeared in a human-populated area; perhaps they lost their mother or deviated from their route. Luckily, the mother bear was not near and after playing with the cubs Iva escaped safely.
