Great cosy atmosphere, amazing fondue!

We visited the Crystal Hut as part of a cat trip up the mountain for a fondue dinner. So cosy and inviting from the cold mountain air being so high up! Great views on a clear day or night.

Our family enjoyed lunch at the Crystal Hut 3 days during our 7 day ski trip. They would have eaten here every day if they could have. The waffles are amazing as is the view from the deck on a sunny day. I also really enjoyed the vegetable soup with a side of beet roots and arugula. A perfect spot... More

If you are at the top in Blackcomb, the Crystal Hut is great for a morning coffee and waffles! The waffles are large enough to share and even the drip coffee is good! The menu also looked good for lunch, but imagine that it gets very busy. It reminded me of Europe as a real mountain lodge.

On a sunny day, on the deck it is glorious. Ski in from the upper traverse from the glacier chair, or after coming down the Blackcomb Glacier. Not much capacity so come outside lunch if on weekends. Staff are making a tremendeous effort.

The Crystal Hut is a great place to have waffles, soup, etc. when you are skiing on Blackcomb Mountain. It is at the top of the now Crystal Ridge Chair and the waffles are their specialty. It is normally crowded so be prepared to wait for a seat but service is fairly quick and people normally don't linger. On clear/sunny... More

After a spectacular mornings skiing in Blackcomb a fitting reward for those with a sweet tooth! We were lucky enough to hit it on a sunny day so sat outside to enjoy the breathtaking views whilst tucking into a fully loaded waffle - yum yum pigs bum!!!

The kitchen is tiny but the food delicious and the service cheerful. My favourite lunch stop on the Whistler/Blackcomb mountains.

The Mountain! Great food my kids love it. A must destination on a cold windy day or in the sun on the deck! It's a shame though that WB doesn't have more places like this to offer.

Perched high up on Blackcomb Mountain the Crystal Hut is probably akin to heaven, especially on bluebird days when the views from the terrace are spectacular. Alongside this any visit would not be complete without indulging in a fully loaded waffle (and don't forget to save a little for the Whiskyjacks, they love to take food from your hand). This...
