About the sandwich:
With the recent bluebird days in BC, climbed Blackcomb Peak with the amigos to eat a delicious Roast Beef, bell pepper, avocado, lettuce, and cholula on sourdough sandwich before descending to shred Disease Ridge. Nothing beats a delicious sandwich on a mountaintop!
Location: Spearhead Range, Whistler BC
About the sandwich: Half way through the Canadian Ski Guide Level 1 course we had a day of bluebird heliskiing in the Spearhead Range. We were sort of in ‘go go go’ mode and I didn’t have much time to line up the perfect shot (or even get the sandwich in focus). The day was still epic, as was the wich. I bought the roast beef sandwich at Mount Currie Coffee Co in Pemby. I think it has mad it onto the site at least once before.

About the sandwich: Sometime in the middle of February I went up to the Duffy to take advantage of the new snow and clear sky weather. Jeff and I toured up Chief Pascal to ski the Equinox line and made an attempt on the peak before heading down. The ridge walk towards the summit had some pretty sporty sections and unfortunately we had to turn around about 10 feet from the top. That whole ‘its about the journey not the destination’ spiel often works well with my mountain philosophy but 10ft? Come on!
The Roast Beef sandwich came from the Mount Currie Coffee Co. in Pemberton. Great day to eat any sandwich up high in the mountains…this one really hit the spot though.
Jeff put together his GoPro footage from the day…
Location: Middle Sister. Outside of Canmore AB.
About the Sandwich:This was a sandwich for the books. I took a mountaineering course a couple years ago in Canmoreand stopped by the Canmore Bagel Co. All sandwiches here are on bagels but they are still classified as sandwiches. I tried a bunch of them but “The Mountaineer” took the cake when brought into alpine terrain. The day after the course I hiked up the Middle Sister just outside of the town and got one of my favorite sandwich photos.
