About the sandwich:
There is an African proverb: “It takes a village to raise a child.”
There is also an Alpine proverb: “It takes a village to raise an alpine sandwich.”
I have many people to thanks for the ingredients that came together to create this delicious sandwich, including one who did so unwittingly. Ciabatta bread (thanks mom!), organic arugula, double smoked farmers’ cut bacon, tomato (thanks Ryan!), and lemonaise (thanks mystery roommate!). Superb texture and taste.
Finally I’m a Canadian Ski Guide! Having completed the ten day CSGA course and exam I felt comfortable naming this sandwich the ‘Guides Opinion’. Lets face it, some people know what they are doing in the mountains, some people know how to make a good sandwich…but only a rare few can do both properly. We had an incredible course with days of rope rescue, avalanche rescue, backcountry travel and even a Heli ski day in the Spearhead.

About the Sandwich:
Sunny day ski touring in the Whistler Backcountry. Heading out to Cowboy Ridge. Tuna salad, BACON, Cheddar (extra sharp), Sun dried tomato and little bits of Red Onion in a Spinach Tortilla. A wrap is not a sandwich, apologies.
