For being an oversized hairy ape/man, Bigfoot has surely been nothing short of elusive despite his many sightings. Most recently seen in the Canadian mountains, Bigfoot was caught on tape wandering across the snowy slopes.
The video was shot by Myles Lamont about two years ago where he and a couple of his friends had decided to go on a hiking expedition. As they made their way across the Tantalus Range, movement down below caught their eye.

The video seems to depict a two-legged entity crossing the snow at a rather quick rate of speed. Mr Lamont explained in the video, “Pretty sure this is Sasquatch down there. I can’t see it very well. It’s this little black dot walking in the middle of the snow in the middle of nowhere.”
Describing perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the sighting, Lamont asks, “If that’s human why would you walk up that ridge or that snow line? Why would he not just go straight down?”
Joking around during the clip, you can hear Lamont sarcastically note, “Good thing we brought beers. Maybe we can lure him over here. I don’t know how high we are, but we’re probably close to 7,000 feet and this guy’s just scampering up snow lines like it’s no big deal.”
As the hiker later noted, there was a cliff directly below him, and there was literally no way in which they could have pursued the mythical creature. “There was a very steep drop off below where the video was shot, easily a 300m sheer face. We were not equipped with climbing gear and a descent around would have been impossible before nightfall,” added Lamont.
Although the group wasn’t able to get too close, Lamont was able to make certain assertions as he described, “the subject was clearly bipedal and was without snowshoes or a backpack and wearing all one colored clothing.”
He continued by mentioning, “Movement over this kind of terrain in soft snow without snowshoes would have been very difficult and the distance traveled over the given time period would have been very fast for a human without proper snow travel gear.”
Lamont isn’t saying with complete certainty that this was, in fact, Bigfoot as he suggests, “Perhaps the most reasonable explanation for this video is a very ill prepared hiker, hiking up a difficult section of snowline as opposed to a much easier route, one who is very physically fit and able to cover ground in unusually quick fashion and must have had very large feet as we were breaking through snow crust in just our boots.”
The video has been seen on YouTube over half a million times leading to speculation on both sides of the spectrum. Whichever way you lean on the matter, Lamont claims that the only reason he put it up was because his friends encouraged him to. “We had no intention for it to gather the interest it has. We are not claiming this to be anything other than a strange encounter,” he concluded.
