Whistler Restaurants, From burgers to Caviar…… Fantastic!
Each time we have dined at Whistler Restaurants on Whistler Blackcomb mountains, we’ve been amazed first of all by the sheer numbers of restaurants, and second, by the fine menu of food available for every taste bud, and finally the ability of the facilities to serve such vast numbers of skiers who ski there daily.
Combined the Whistler restaurants on both mountains can seat 6,500 at a time. Many times We have witnessed well over 10,000 skiers on a given day, on each mountain. You would think the lineups would be terribly long on both the lifts and restaurants but generally the opposite is true.
With ski run map in hand, sit in the high speed quad lifts and up and away you go. The 38 lifts offer an incredible choice of runs. Check your map. Find the run that will take you to your restaurant of choice. It’s fun trying the many different lifts. There is a t-bar on Blackcomb to take you right to the top giving you access to the glacier for wild, ungroomed skiing adventure.
Our favorite Whistler restaurant on the mountain is the Crystal Hut. This one says it all.
A beautifully built log cabin perched on the mountainside. They feature very tasty waffles and a perfect menu of comfort foods cooked to order in a wood-burning oven. Barbecues on sunny days and a special dining experience everyday. Ask about our special evening guided snowmobile adventure tours to Crystal Hut. You will love this whistler restaurant.
It’s not very large, unlike the others, but the log cabin design, combined with the one on one relaxed service and great cuisine fits me to a tee. I love these Whistler restaurants.
Irma and I love to sit out on the huge deck overhanging the mountainside where the Canada jays will feed from your hand. Here they are very tame. The Crystal chair lift passes mere feet away. Even on a poor weather day, the setting is as near to heaven as possible to be for whistler restaurants.

Horstman HutPerched at 7,494 ft., Horstman Hut is the tip of the world. Take one of the Hut's rustic seats and enjoy any of the tasty food items such as chili, hearty stews and that timeless favorite, macaroni and cheese. A barbecue on top of the world with spectacular views of the entire valley will be remembered forever. Located at the top of 7th Heaven Express.From just outside you can either ski into a huge bowl over to the t-bar for access to the glacier or, across the open face down to the tree line far below. The views from this vantage point are mind blowing. Worth the price of the lift ticket alone.
Always buy good equipment. Shortly after moving to Vancouver my wife Irma, as well as our daughter, Nancy, and son in law Jeff and I purchased what we thought was pretty good, used, ski boots. We ended up at Horstman Hut for a great lunch. Nancy offered to ski with her mom who skied a little slower than the men. As the run down from this site allowed for more speed.
Jeff and I took off and enjoyed the thrill of dropping a mile in elevation down to the bottom of the mountain. Completely oblivious to what went on behind us.
As Irma went into her first turn below the Hut, the entire upper half of her boot came apart from the rest. The ski with the other half left for parts unknown. A snowmobile had to be called to the rescue to carry my befuddled wife a very long distance to the bottom.
After a long wait, Nancy and Irma showed up carrying the two parts of the boot, which was soon up on the notice board as a reminder for all skiers to be sure to buy good equipment.
