DENIED Sandwiches

This space on the website is designed for the all the sandwich uploaders who deserve some credit for trying yet ultimately failed at meeting the criteria of what the site is going for.

It is unfortunate that in this batch of pictures there are some of the finest sandwiches, views, and write ups that the site has to offer. However, we at alpine sandwiches strive for a high level of professionalism and felt the need to keep the project clean and structured.

This gallery is still well worth the visit.

Marshmallow R I C E Cracker sandwich


Marshmallow sandwiched in R I C E Crackers!

 

From: Olaf and Lars

Location: Mt. Jo – Adirondacks – Lake Placid

About the sandwich:
We really wanted to send you a sandwich pic so this one is kind of improvised with what we brought to the top (very light to carry) lots of finer and protein! Actually tasted pretty good after the steep climb.
Recommended as a desert sandwich.

The Nor’Easter

seven-pepper hummus and sausage

From: David Gruber

Location: Dix mountain, Adirondacks

About the sandwich:
The Nor’easter – it may not be the most exciting, nor the most heavily dressed, but this pita sandwich packs a mean punch. It contains seven-pepper hummus and sausage, which produce the perfect mix of savoury and salty. Better couplings are seldom stumbled upon. This sandwich was eaten after ascending Dix moutnain on a gorgeous day in the Adirondack mountains. Simple but damn tasty.

Suggested variation: add gouda and/or jarlsberg cheese.

The ‘Fuel Up’

 

Beef and Cheddar

From: Alex Murphy

 
Location: Rainbow Mountain – below N/E face

About the sandwich:
It was a Beef/Cheddar sandwich from the Alpine Cafe. We picked up said sandwich on the way to the heliport which saved me from a lunch consisting of only very low quality granola bars.

After skiing the lines shown the picture this sandwich was a god-send before a steep hike back up. It tasted mostly of bread, beef and a hint of cheddar which satisfied the true mountain man in me.

Recommendations for future patrons or sandwich enthusiasts would be to double the size of the sandwich or buy two. There may have been tomato on the sandwich…but I cant be sure.

This sandwich would also suit both gladed runs and south facing couloirs. This sandwich has not been domesticated and should not be consumed at home.

The “Roe Creek Attempt”

Name: Jeff Van Driel

Location: Roe Creek

Description: Okay – technically not a sandwich I know, but I don’t take sandwiches with me that often. Also, I’ve been feeling the pressure to make an entry. So here it is… Obviously feeling the need for early season turns, we headed up Roe creek into Cypress. A great choice, with good 4×4 access and LOTS of snow! This is all relative as it is still…EARLY SEASON! All the same, we found some great skiing. So the “sandwich” is just Triscuits and smoked salmon. Now the salmon is the prime ingredient as it is smoked by my dad in the smoker built and previously owned by my grandpa. This is the finest smoked salmon I have found, but I am a little biased. This was key energy as this was only the second day of the season and a boost was needed. I hope I don’t receive too much flak about my Alpine non-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.
