A couple weeks ago, we saw the Toronto Zoo’s polar bear cub take its first tentative steps indoors. Now, the nearly 3-month-old cub was filmed stepping onto snow for the first time.

It’s footage sure to draw a few “awws.”

“What better way to stay warm during this Polar Vortex than by watching another heart-warming video of our cub exploring the outdoors!” the zoo wrote on its Facebook page, releasing the video Wednesday of this week.

When the cub was plopped on the snow, he started to pad the flaky precipitation with his paws and gave a few high-pitched yelps before taking a small step back toward his caretaker.
