“From the top 10 on your bucket list”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

It must be a sunny day. Fresh snowfall would also be nice, but not necessary. Must be craving for something sweet and good to eat. Go around 10:30 to 11:00am, before the bigger crowds and order the waffles fully loaded, that's strawberries, blueberries, whipped cream and warm maple syrup. Will make you ski like a heathen all day long:)

“great place to warm up”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

This hut is cozy on a cold day of skiing. They make fantastic waffles fully loaded which is the main reason we go to eat there. If it 's your first time on blackcomb, you must go once to try the waffles. The reason i give it 4 starts instead of 5 is that it's a small hut and can get filled up quickly at lunch time. I've had to wait up to 15 mins waiting for a seat.

“Waffles were just ok”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

I always hear people raving about the waffles from Crystal Hut, but I didn't think they were that good, just average. You can select from a few toppings, which include chocolate, maple syrup, strawberries, blueberries and cream....they didn't even have chocolate when I went there, so I was a little disappointed.
