Most food in Whistler is terrible and over priced.. But I really liked the waffles at the Crystal Hut. I had the works with syrup, berries, bacon, banana and Bailey's. It was enough food for the day. Not cheap but good quality fluffy waffles in...More

Fantastic waffles in a great stopping place during a hard days skiing! One waffle enough between 2 if I’m honest. Have to get there before 11am to grab a seat.

Has a great outlook, but in reality you go for the Waffles which are solid, if not over priced, but its to be expected given its location. 100% rerecorded to head across to it

Nice location. Good atmosphere inside. Food choice limited. But if you don't want to drink at lunchtime it is fine. I prefer a beer at lunchtime when skiing. So not for me.

We stopped in for hot chocalate, but everyone was eating waffles. Had we not finished lunch two hours earlier, we would have been eating waffles too. Space can be tight on a busy day. Hot chocalate rocked.

The waffles at the crystal hut never disappoint. The staff are great too. It can be hard getting a seat inside around 10.30 but it is worth the squeeze in. On a sunny day sitting outside is beautiful. Make sure you go here if you...More

While skiing Blackcomb mountain I stopped at this tiny log cabin perched at almost 6000 feet overlooking the valley below. I had the turkey chili which uniquely included a scoop of mashed potatoes and a nice hunk of crusty bread. Perfect quick ski break with...More

If you don't do anything else have a waffle. Go early before the line-up. Just something about the hut - - so cozy, so friendly, - - a special place you can dream about for years to come. - - - or have nightmares that...More

The hours Crystal Hut will be open will be supject to the daily lift openings. I am sure Whistler and Blackcomb are open in May but go on the website for lift openings and closures. Crystal Hut is on the piste so will... More
