A nice sunrise behind me as I skin up the Sunshine Ski-Out.There are more options than you'd think on the way up. I stuck in the lower canyon as much as possible before cutting up to my left to the main skiout.Mount Bourgeau catches a nice sunrise.Looking back over a steep rise in the approach trail, Mount Bourgeau and the Bourgeau Left ice climb visible.Looking back at where I came up (from Middle Canyon) and joined the main ski-out road.I catch up to another group of early rising backcountry enthusiasts on the main ski-out trail now.Looking back at the Wolverine Express chair which I crossed underneath while traversing to the resort area.I tried shortcutting towards the Meadow Park green run for some reason, going climber's right before "Coral Cutoff (109)".Near the top of the Meadow Park run, I cut off to climber's right heading for Wawa Ridge.Looking back over Meadow Park run (bottom) towards Goat's Eye (L) and Eagle Mountain, Howard Douglas and Lookout (L to R).Looking ahead to Wawa Ridge on the left.Looking south as I start up the south ridge. Citadel, Fatigue and Assiniboine at left, Twin Cairns at center and The Monarch at center right.I dropped my skis here - I could have bashed my way down on the boards, but why bother? The east face is surprisingly steep on the right side.Looking over the lovely Sunshine Meadows to the south towards Mount Assiniboine with Quartz Hill in front and Simpson Ridge, Nestor and Indian PeaksPlenty of human detritus at the summit of Wawa Ridge.Sunshine Ski Resort including (L to R), Goat's Eye (Eagle Mountain), Howard Douglas, Lookout, Brewster Rock, Standish.Looking south over Sunshine Meadows towards Citadel Pass and Mount Assiniboine.Mount Brett and Bourgeau at left with Healy Creek running up in the valley in the foreground and Eagle Mountain at right.Massive cairn near the summit.
