“The rustler is the bomb!”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Been coming here for years and it only gets better.... If you like great food friendly service and great accommodations with ski in and ski out at the best mountain in the lower 48 (arguably the best anywhere), come stay here. The Rustler is the bomb. I am coming back again and again.

Loved the rustler location, food , staff & amenities! Waiter Alex rocked it out in the dining room each night.! The dark side is the check out staff & their billing process! 5 days after checkout, im still wrangling with interrpretion and Correction of my bill! I can't believe a lodge of this status would have so many missteps in their accounting! Still hoping to get it resolved. Big downer after a beautiful vacation .

Without question: this is the best managed ski resort hotel in the country. Our group of 20+ returning guests was handled with grace and expert attention from the moment we walked through the door. The incredible dining and elegant slope side accommodations at the Rustler are simply without peer.

Hard to beat this combination - Alta and The Rustler. Very comfortable with excellent amenities and accomodating, friendly staff. Some of the best bacon you'll ever have! A wonderful Groundhog Day tradition for, hopefully, many years to come.

Room Tip: The bunk rooms are great for a group.

Alta and its lift-connected neighbor, Snowbird, are well known among the ski world cognoscenti as premier ski areas with incomparable snow, world class terrain, and an emphasis on the skiing experience first and foremost. And within the Alta/Snowbird complex, Alta's Rustler Lodge ranks first in combining the wonderful atmosphere of a traditional ski lodge with modern creature comforts and a high level of cuisine and service. With a full spa, ski shop in the lodge, comfortable bar, dining room looking out on the mountain looming above, and ski lifts right out the door, you never need, or want, to leave the lodge except to ski. Having stayed at virtually all the lodges in both Alta and Snowbird (and skied at many other resorts), it's easy to recommend The Rustler.

The Rustler is a great ski lodge in a perfect location. Ski in/ski out onto the incomparable slopes of Alta. The lodge has all the necessities you would want for a ski vacation; clean, comfortablee rooms, a large and pleasant dining room, cozy bar, well run spa, geat pool and hot tubs, sauna, steam room, and a great exercise facility. Free interenet connectivity and good cell phone coverage a well. The food is terrific, the service is excellent, the staff is attentive and friendly.

I've skiied everywhere in Utah. If you aren't headed to Alta you should be. I've been in all the lodges at Alta, if you're not staying at The Rustler you're missing out.

I just returned from my second stay at Alta's Rustler Lodge and I know that I will keep returning. It is a true ski-in ski-out hotel that is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are spacious (by ski-resort standards), well-appointed, and very clean. Maid service is excellent, and the food was quite good (breakfast and dinner is included in the room charge), and suffers only from the fact that it is too plentiful. I was also impressed by the wine list (very well-chosen and reasonably priced). Access to the slopes was through a row of ski lockers on level with the outdoor slope, with return via Rustler's dedicated lift. The prices are high by Alta standards, but you get what you pay for; given the fact that the room includes free WiFi, 2 meals daily, gratis afternoon snacks, as well as the quality of the room amenities, the value proposition is excellent.

Perhaps the most remarkable and impressive aspect of Rustler was the extraordinary effort that the staff made to make my stay enjoyable. From the guest relations representative (Jackie), to the manager (Kate) to the owner (Steve) -- all were warm, friendly, and seemed passionate about their roles in making their guests comfortable and welcome.

Bottom line - in a ski area dedicated to the rugged athleticism of skiing as it once was, it is so nice to stay in a lodge that so capably attends to your comfort and convenience.
