This almost happened to me once, but with a moose instead of a deer. I was at Killington early season a couple years back. There was some early snow, so a decent amount of stuff was open. I cruised on down some trail and when I crossed over a rollover -- there was a moose standing there. He was about two medium-radius turns away, pawing away at the snow, looking for food, I guess. I scooted around behind the moose; I don't think it ever really noticed I was there. I was real glad he wasn't standing a whole lot further uphill though. I can see the headlines "skier runs into moose".
