Ski Lodge on Blackcomb

We stopped at the Crystal Hut twice for lunch. Decent lodge food and gorgeous views. Easy stop if you are skiing the Jersey Cream area.

We chose the snowmobile over the snowcat, definitely a must-do (but dress warm). Dinner experience is not good value, little food to sustain the adrenaline needed for the return trip (which was even more challenging than going up).

Go early and go often! Best waffles around! Be sure to get all the fixings including fruit, chocolate and whip cream!

One could not ski Blackcomb and miss the Crystal Hut. As the waffles and very decadent, we waited all week to devour them. After a big morning skiing we loved every last bite. A must at some stage of your skiing in Blackcomb.

Great views from the sun deck, when its cloudy/windy/cold, cozy inside. The smell of the cooking waffles is great, even if you're not having any. I go out of my way to stop there as often as possible

This place was highly recommended and didn't disappoint. The waffles are amazing for a little extra you can add banana and baileys which was definitely worth it. If you get the chance stop in for a waffle. Btw they serve other warm food. My friends had the soup which they really enjoyed.

Had waffles for Christmas day breakfast. Totally amazing. Make sure you visit here when in Whistler. It can get pretty busy but service is quick and people will bunch up to let you sit down.

Great waffles and hot chocolate located on top of blackcomb mountain. Wooden tables outside to sit in your snow gear, as well as a limited amount of seating inside as well. Grab a friend and split a waffle with all the fixings!

In a fantastic spot, most amazing food in the resort. The Salads are good, the other dishes look great too, but you have to leave space for a Cinnamon Bun! Served Warm from the oven they are The Best.
