Whistler Introduces New Chair in Wonder Reels Episode

Wonder Reels Waffles and Wagers

The new Crystal Ridge Express, opening this winter, is the star of the latest episode of Wonder Reels.


Whistler Blackcomb is opening a new chair this season, the Crystal Ridge Express on Blackcomb, and what better way to showcase it than in a new episode of Wonder Reels, the resort’s webisode series, which is entering its second season. In Waffles and Wagers, two skiers and two snowboarders ride the new quad together when they are overcome by the smell of waffles from the Crystal Hut. One rider declares, “Last one’s buying,” and the race is on. Producers (the venerable Switchback Entertainment, the same people responsible for Salomon Freeski T.V.) then use the faux race to highlight some of the new terrain the lift services, including such runs as Rock and Roll, Fraggle Rock, and The Burn, as well as the epic views.
