Southwest Chicken in Channel Ridge

Escaping the crowds is becoming increasingly harder as the backcountry becomes more accessible to the average user.  A couple of weeks ago I headed past most of the popular Duffy Lake trailheads to Channel Creek. The area is a little more of a drive up from Pemberton but worth it for it’s remoteness and vast amount of skiable terrain. I brought a great sandwich from the Pemberton Valley supermarket and ate it in the middle of a frozen lake before camping out.


Southwest Chicken Sandwich: Caribbean Chicken, black olives, sun dried tomatoes, cheddar, and chipotle mayo sandwiched between two pieces of cheddar and bun.

The Dud in Revy

About the Sandwich: So I was running out of time early in the morning last week and made a poor choice to buy a chicken salad sandwich at Tim Horton’s. The only good move was that I got it on an everything bagel.  The chicken had way too much mayo and tasted a bit funky.  Taking a sandwich like this into the backcountry is not recommended.  The Revelstoke Fingers are in the background.

Steep Creek Release

Interesting spring day at Steep Creek in the Duffey. The plan was to do a ridge walk around the area but all solar aspects were sliding, cornices were falling, and the snow was a bit heavy for skiing. Instead we found a high spot to trigger some wet slides and photograph sandwiches.

Chicken Salad, Avocado, Cheddar, Red Onion, Honey Oat Bread

and then an afternoon snack…

Not a sandwich but a great snack wrap with the same view. I made a bean, onion, garlic mix with cheddar cheese and avocado. Looks like one of those cheddar tortillas.
