Time to Eat Out !

Mountain Dining Whistler & Blackcomb

 

The best time to stop for lunch is either early (11.30am) or late (post 2pm) to avoid the busy times!

 

Here’s a quick summary of some of the great places to eat on the mountains:-

 

Blackcomb

 

Glacier Creek Lodge

This is one of my favourites!  Located at the bottom of the Jersey Cream chair lift and also the Glacier Creek Chair, you will find the views from here are spectactular.  It’s one of the bigger restaurants, however they offer a huge variety of foods.

 

What do they offer:

They offer a wide selection of food to cater for everyone’s needs or just grab a coffee or hot chocolate at the café.

 

In the spring time they also fire up an outdoor BBQ with live music.

 

Hortsman Hut:

You really need to avoid the busy times here as the hut is quite small – it’s a cosy log cabin.  You really are on top of the world (right at the top of the 7th Heaven Chair).  In spring there’s some outdoor seating.

 

What do they offer:

A small selection of hot and cold foods (soups and chilli) – a great place to warm up with a quick hot choc and a croissant stop!

 

Crystal Hut (or what I call ‘the Waffle House’)!

Head up the Crystal Chair and you’ll find this lovely but cabin at the top!  It really is the place for hot waffles, fruit and lashings of cream. Great for sharing!  In warmer weather you can enjoy the wonderful deck while soaking up the sunshine and glorious views. 

 

Rendezvous

This is one of the big restaurants on the mountain.  Located at the top of the Solar Coaster Chair and next to the Peak 2 Peak Gondola.

 

If you are looking for something a little more upmarket you can opt for ‘fine dining’ at Christine’s which is a separate restaurant at the Rendezvous.

 

What do they offer:

A wide selection of hot and cold food.  If you are after a snack, they have a separate café offering teas, coffee, hot chocolates, cakes and pastries.

 

Whistler:

 

Chic Pea

A must visit to sample the warm freshly baked cinnamon buns!   Just off Whiskey Jack run on Whistler.  The Chic Pea is a log cabin and if the sun’s shining there are plenty of seats outside!

 

What do they offer:

Flatbreads, soups, chilli – most of the usual hot and cold foods and of course their famous cinnamon buns!

 

RoundHouse

This is the biggest restaurant on the mountain.  Located at the top of the Whistler Gondola and next to the Peak 2 Peak Gondola.  Lots of indoor and outdoor seating.  They also have ‘Steeps Grill & Wine Bar’ which Whistler’s full service dining restaurant.

 

What do they offer:

A wide selection of hot and cold food, from pizza’s, curry, noodles, soups, wraps and more!

 

Dusty’s

A great place to stop if you want to ski the ‘Peak to Creek’.  It’s at the bottom of the mountain and this run takes you down to the base of Creekside where you will find Whistler’s original watering hole!  This place has a great atmosphere, especially for après.

 

What do they offer:

Legendary pulled pork sandwiches, burgers, salads and more, all finished off with a classic ‘Caesar’.

 

Ravens Nest

Located just at the base of ‘Big Red’ chair, this cosy restaurant is a ‘vegetarian only’ restaurant. 

 

What do they offer:

Wraps, salads and lots of healthy options!
