A small, cozy and warm place. Great sandwiches and Turkey Chili. Be there before 11h30 or after 13h30....it is crowded at noon, but it is also a good opportunity to share the table and lunch with interesting peoples coming from various countries.
Genuine mountain hut feeling.

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 a beautiful location.

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.

Crystal Hut is on Blackcomb mountain and at this time of year (winter) you can only get there by skiing. We got up early to get up the mountain first thing. The Crystal ski lift was not open by the time we got there so we did a quick run before returning about 15 minutes later. Lift operators were good, letting us know how long it would be before the lifts open. We were on the 7th or 8th chair that uploaded and got a table for 6 quickly but the restaurant is very small and fills up quickly. But a huge reason for that is these waffles are superb!! Big, fluffy, cooked to perfection and come loaded with syrup, fruit, whipped cream, chocolate sauce and chocolate shavings. If that’s not enough you can add bacon, Bailey’s and/or bananas. Absolutely delicious!! Great thing about skiing in is you get to ski out and burn off these amazing calories!!! What a fantastic way to start your skiing day!!!

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
