We were heading down the mountain during a late afternoon in winter.  Our skis were fairly quiet, and we decieded to rest.  Not too far from where we stopped, there was a ruckus nearby.  A red fox (Vulpes vulpes) was extracting important calories from a winter kill elk.  When this mountain environment is aching cold and deep snow and freezing temperatures take the lives of winter-weakened animals, predators like this fox are one of the beneficiaries.
