There are so few avalanche-free parking spots in Alta, the staff at the Rustler Lodge move your car around for you, depending on the snowplowing schedule. Then they bring it to the lodge's ingenious underground entrance, so you can load and unload out of the storm.
And that's just one of hundreds of thoughtful details the lodge has figured out. Others include generous appetizers in the bar after skiing for hungry guests (pot stickers, spicy hot wings, crudités with blue cheese), real crackling wood fireplaces, coffee in the halls at 6 a.m., a full service ski shop downstairs, and their own chair lift to bring you back after powder skiing at Alta Ski Lifts.
Top management has been in place for decades; they've got it dialed. They pick bright young skiers for staff, people from all over who are happy to serve you because they get to ski, every day, on one of the best mountains anywhere.
Best of all, perhaps, the Rustler maintains the tradition of the all-inclusive ski week: come and stay; everything you need in one cozy building, including two splendid meals a day (plus lunch if you want), outdoor and indoor hot pools, the New York Times every morning, eggs benedict and homemade granola on the breakfast buffet. And bacon!
