On this perfect clear and cold evening, we started skiing around 5:30 and skied right into some amazing Alpenglow and fading light. The surrounding peaks were glowing in the last light of the day and it was cool to see Mount Assiniboine awash in pink Alpenglow. What a gorgeous evening.

After a decadent dinner at the Sunshine Mountain Lodge, we skinned back up the mountain for a quick moonlight tour. Once the moon came up, the entire slope was lit up to make it an exceptionally beautiful, fun evening. As a bonus, the skiing was frickin' fantastic. We made 3 runs by moonlight, with perfect boot deep powder under a full bright moon. It's a great big crazy beautiful world when you ski tour under a full moon. I don't know if you were out howling, but I sure was.
