Great waffles and sandwiches

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...

Unbelievable food for a mountainside eatery...limited menu...because they don't need anything else. They have the sweet, the vegetarian, the salad, the meat, the drink. Nothing else needed here but a table...always busy, always a little overwhelming because its so small and so busy and so packed ALL THE TIME, but I tell you sometimes you just need a waffle packed...

Fantastic views!! Quiet, quaint log cabin suitable for about 50 people (max). Fresh baked pastries and options for a large waffle for breaky, and lots of options for lunch. The staff are happy and attentive to the needs of their customers. What a great experience. We tried to book the snowmobile fondue dinner tour but we were too late. When... More

The Crystal Hut is located on Blackcomb Mountain, at the top of the Crystal Ridge Chairlift. It is a classic rustic log cabin, with a big deck and a view of the mountains and valley below. It is small, crowded (because it's popular) and expensive. The menu is limited to waffles, chilii, sandwiches, snacks, soft drinks, coffee and beer. But... More

This is a fairly small eatery on Blackcomb Mountain, but man, totally worth the trip up mountain. It's mainly known for its waffles and oh, what waffles! Probably the best I've ever had. And I don't want to know the calories involved. The standard Belgian waffle comes with maple syrup, berries compote, whipped cream, and chocolate shavings. You can add... More
