Crystal Hut Fondue by Snowcat
From US$ 170.71
Overview
Discover a Canadian signature dining experience with this guided, 3.5-hour tour in Whistler, British Columbia. Take a journey in a luxury, 19-passenger snowcat to the charming Crystal Hut, a rustic log cabin located high atop Blackcomb Mountain at 6,000 feet (1,826 meters). Enjoy the local interpretation of a traditional fondue dinner, paired with fine wine and followed with a fresh-baked fruit pie, served hot from a wood-fired oven. Take in the alpine colors and panoramic views of the surrounding Coast Mountain Range and the twinkling lights of Whistler Village below. The evening is complete with live entertainment.
What to Expect
This unique dining experience begins at the Canadian Wilderness Adventures Desk in the lower level of the Carleton Lodge, a hotel in Whistler Village. Climb into a heated, luxury, 19-passenger snowcat en route to the enchanting Crystal Hut, a cozy, quaint log cabin located an hour away on Crystal Ridge, high atop Blackcomb Mountain at 6,000 feet (1,828 meters). 

Enjoy the chef's local interpretation of a traditional fondue dinner. On the menu is cheese fondue (Gruyere, Emmental, and white wine served with a baguette and pickles), fondue chinoise (chicken, beef tenderloin, and assorted vegetables with vegetable broth, served with a variety of dipping sauces), and a fresh-baked fruit pie with real whipped cream.

Along the way to the cabin and during the dining experience itself, take in the alpine colors and panoramic views of the surrounding Coast Mountain Range, as well as the twinkling lights of Whistler Village below.

The evening concludes with a return trip to the Carleton Lodge.

Long ride for a great dinner

The snowcat ride is an hour in each direction, which gets very old. There are some nice views during the ride, but not enough to make the ride seem shorter. The fondue dinner in the Crystal Hut is very good, and one of our guides...More
