On a sunny day, on the deck it is glorious. Ski in from the upper traverse from the glacier chair, or after coming down the Blackcomb Glacier. Not much capacity so come outside lunch if on weekends. Staff are making a tremendeous effort.

The kitchen is tiny but the food delicious and the service cheerful. My favourite lunch stop on the Whistler/Blackcomb mountains.

The Mountain! Great food my kids love it. A must destination on a cold windy day or in the sun on the deck! It's a shame though that WB doesn't have more places like this to offer.
