Backcountry Baker



Just a guy who likes to eat pies, pastries and sandwiches on mountain tops, carrying excessive amount of camera gear on slogs on pointless adventures in the mountains, forcing friends to sample baked goods.

I am most interested in skiing, climbing, hiking, trail running and sailing. I’m in the process of converting my blog spot from my previous blogger host to WordPress format, so please bear with me as I revive my old posts.

In 2015, I founded the North Shore Beer and Pie Club in the middle of an exceptionally poor ski season, with crusty conditions widespread on the South Coast. Since then, I’ve been hosting mountain top pie parties on as many mountains with as many friends as possible. Hope to see you at one of them!
