I love waffles – part 2

The fully-loaded waffle at Crystal Hut on Blackcomb Mountain

The fully-loaded waffle at Crystal Hut on Blackcomb Mountain

Well, how many thousands of words is this picture worth?

I first heard about the waffles at Crystal Hut on Blackcomb Mountain a couple of weeks ago from fellow volunteers, Pat & Paul. So, on my day off yesterday I made a point of checking them out while skiing on Blackcomb for the day.

The skiing was not bad, considering there had been no fresh snow for about a week. The brilliant sunshine of the past week started giving way to clouds in the morning and light snow in the afternoon. That did not deter me as I made my way up to Crystal Hut at just under the 6,000 foot level on the mountain.

I must have appeared a bit too anxious as I arrived 10 minutes before their opening time of 10:00 am. The chef told me to go ski another run, so I did as I was told. In the picture to the left, you see what was waiting for me when I returned 🙂 It is the fully-loaded waffle – topped with blueberries, strawberries, maple syrup, whip cream & chocolate chips.

Back to the skiing for a minute. I got more than my money’s worth, as the mountain was virtually deserted. I may have had a couple of waits in line, but no more than 15 seconds – yes, seconds and not minutes!

Now back to the waffles. I had not planned on this being a series of related posts when I first wrote about the waffles at Norway House. But, I now feel more of a sense of purpose to my 2 weeks up at Whistler. Stay tuned for the next episode with pictures and a story about the yummy Belgian waffles from the edge of the Longhorn Bar at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains.
