About the sandwich:
Mmmhh nothing beats a turkey and ham sandwich with avocado, mango salsa, cholula hot sauce, and green peppers topped off with a PBR while shredding Baker backcountry pow and receiving a Vitamin D overdose. Life is good

About the sandwich:
Turkey, avocado, honey Dijon on a french loaf. It tasted simply incredible and gave us the energy needed to make the summit!

About the sandwich:
This cold cut went down smooth, and was well deserved after a line like that. The explosion of flavor was not unlike the glorious 3000′ of vertical we had just slashed. The first few bites where a little dry, but after that it was nothing but pure delectability. All in all, I would give this sandwich a 8/10. But where else can you get a sandwich at 7:00am right before you jump in a helicopter? Props Alpine Cafe!
There are few sandwiches that I would make the effort to bring across the country from Montreal to British Columbia just for the sake of the photo. The Club Roll from the Snowdon Delicatessen in Montreal is an exception. This is a sandwich that upped my sandwich game as a child. Simple ingredients, nothing fancy.
Last winter my brother Andrew brought a bunch out to Whistler. I couldn’t get it out into the real backcountry in time so I just got a photo high up on Blackcomb…Spanky’s Ladder was the most ideal place for this shot.
Bluebird day touring on Chief Pascal. We skied some couloirs off the summit ridge Sitting down in the sun on top of the ski line, looking at Joffre summit, I ate this sandwich. Awesome.
A couple of weeks ago I set out with my friend PA to find good ski lines around Cayoosh/Marriot Basin area. Avalanche conditions made the day quite interesting requiring careful route selection. We climbed up past Cayoosh Mt. and skied down into Marriot Basin.
We ate our sandwiches while waiting for a clear break in the sky so we could see our decent line. The sandwich was delicious. The tapanade was strong and took a bit of getting used to but still a great stomach filler to have out there. I bought it at the Mount Currie Coffee Co. in Pemberton…incredible coffee and a great place to pick up a sandwich before a treck.

About the sandwich: great tour and got some incredible views of the Spearhead and Garibaldi Park. I had some trouble taking this sandwich shot because the longer I waited to get Castle Towers mountain in focus the colder the ingredients got….especially the brie. It looks like I got the photo just before the last bite.
Location: Looking out at Cartier from Revelstoke, BC
About the sandwich: I just returned from Revelstoke BC where I was taking the Avalanche Operations Level 1 course. We spent most of our days going up the resort and heading slightly out of bounds to find places to dig and assess the snow. Mt. Cartier was a peak in sight from the top of the resort which I thought make a great background for this sandwich.
I sauteed some onions, mushrooms and spinach the night before but I regret that decision. The freezing point of onions is between -1.59 and -1.90°C before they are sauteed…I think I only added to their water content by throwing them on the stove. Given the -25° mountain top temps I froze the onions. Lesson learned.
Gorgeous day touring Chief Pascal with Duffey Lake in the background.

About the Sandwich: I had to pick a starter Alpine Sandwich for the blog and thought not too many can beat the view or the ingredients of the Garibaldi Classic. This is one of the first photos of food I have taken in the backcountry and it is truly one of my favorites.
