SUNSHINE'S SUNSET

Last days...

Having spent 6 months living in the Rockies and with Winter nearly over, we made plans to leave our beloved Sunshine Village and road trip our way to Eastern Canada.

But before we left...

DELIRIUM DIVE

Delirium Dive is what makes Sunshine Village famous. It's an extreme bowl that you can only access by hiking across the right hand top ridge before dropping into the basin. You also can't get in without a partner and avalanche gear (beacon, shovel and probe). Finally we both 'did the dive' after borrowing some avi gear...

Crazy stuff. You can read about it at:

Delirium Dive conquered. Here she is in her intimidating beauty.

FAREWELL SUNSHINE

Of course living in the Rockies is going to be naturally beautiful, but it's the cliche that is so true - it's always the people that make the experience!

Staff Caf, Sunburst, the Gondola, Standish... and of course Trappers.

Thanks guys - big love and awesome memories.

The ultimate shot. You know who you are - and where... Algeria.
