Blackcomb's Secret

Hard to find a seat at peak meal times, So go off peak. Sample the waffles, or brave it on the balcony and feed the Blue Jays. Log cabin atmosphere.

Hungry while skiing. Check out the crystal hit for the famous home made waffles. The stew is great to. Enjoy your lunch on the outside deck slope side and hopefully get a few Rays.

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
