When your thighs are burning and the fresh snow has turned to rain, drop in to this cosy hut and order a fully loaded waffle, piled with berries, whipped cream , maple syrup and chocolate . Delicious ! The guys serving are great. If only they served espresso coffee, then it would be just perfect .

Recommended by friends, we made our way to the hut from the Glacial Express elevation (a shorter route available via Jersey Cream) for Sunday brunch. The hut has limited seating but stunning views from the balcony. It was very busy and the waffle aroma is amazing. A little too much whipped cream but didn't stop creating clean plates - very...

This hut is a warm place to stop if you are in the mood for amazing waffles. The waffles come with lots of weep cream, chocolate and berries. The little hut is crowded mid-day, so stop by mid-morning or after 2pm at the end of your ski day. Just remember, do not plan any aggressive skiing after that!

Great place if you are after a sweet lunch, but other food other than the waffles on offer. Nice atmosphere, warm and great food. Try it.

This hut is fantastic with the most amazing waffles - including GF waffles and really friendly and helpful staff. Great place to warm up when doing the fantastic runs off the Crystal chair

It's just one of those things you just do. We've only had the waffles there, but there are other items on the short menu. It is SMALL and crowded, so beware if you are trying to sit with a big group. One waffle is expensive, but consider sharing because they are big.

For a sandwich it knocked spots of most I've eaten. Yum! It's such a shame that the size of the hut is so small. I think they would benefit from an extension to their serving area and also the addition of another loo. The provision on this part of the mountain is quite poor really. I would have returned for...

Go to Crystal hut at 10am. Beat the rush and enjoy the waffles. They are the best. Then go off and ski till after 1 before taking lunch. These guys sure know how to cook.

This is a waffle hut in winter, and its interesting to see the photos on here with all the snow around and it rammed with people! We went on the ATV Tour with Canadian Wilderness Adventures and climbed up the mountain on the ATV. Had an AMAZING meal of Salmon, potatoes and asparagus whilst we were sung to (requests were...

After skiing by this cabin one day and smelling the scrumptious waffles, I convinced my husband to go there the following day. The views were spectacular and the waffles are fantastic. My husband had a soup and sandwich and regretted not ordering the waffles as well! From the time you order to the time you are eating is only about... More
