I just came across this video on our national
is what the filmers had to say about this video they shot:
In the info provided on the YouTube post, Lamont says, "we are not claiming this to be anything other than a strange encounter based on some of
the reasons below:"
1) We were able to view the subject much better than what the video portrays as it was just a simple point and shoot camera. Contrast was excellent
due to the snow behind the subject.
2) The subject was clearly bipedal and was without snowshoes or a backpack and wearing all one coloured clothing. 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.
3) 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.
4) We have encountered bears on the approach to this summit in the past, this video is most definitely not showing a bear or any other wild animal.
5) 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.
It doesn't sound to me like these guys faked anything because they're not attempting to convince anyone that it actually is a sasquatch... they
themselves are not quite sure what the hell they saw down there.

My initial impression is that the guy narrating the video is WAY too calm. Best guess, based on his behavior, is they are filming a friend down there.
Maybe not, and we really can't tell, but I never saw a good video that didn't have those making it acting at least a little excited.
Most likely these two guys aren't more "excited" while they were filming this because:
1) They're Canadian - which means less tendency to be drama queens
2) They aren't making any definite assumptions of what they're seeing, thus no "freaking out" type of reaction
3) By the tones of their voices and chuckling at the whole situation, it sounds like they have more of a huge "question mark" over their heads
rather than a huge "exclamation mark"
