My wife and I surprised our kids with a week long ski trip to Alta, UT. We stayed at the Rustler Lodge and can't imagine a more perfect stay. The Rustler staff were incredibly helpful, attentive and personable. We drove our rental car into the covered garage, handed the keys to a staff member and our bags were waiting in the room when we opened the door.

We had our rental equipment sized and ready to go in no time and were able to get a few runs in the first day. Having the ski shop inside the Lodge may renting quick and easy -especially for our 5 & 9 year olds.

We had 2 adjoining rooms. Our room had a king bed and the kids' room had 2 queens with pull-out couch. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. Large bathrooms with extra sinks were much appreciated. Tons of hooks to hang ski gear and jackets. We all slept like rocks.

Food: We ate breakfast and dinner at the Rustler every day during our visit. The food was amazing. We did not here a single complaint from any of the kids. We fueled up each morning at the breakfast buffet and tried everything on the menu each night. The dinner specials were delicious and the waitstaff were exceptional. The Rustler offered a kids dinner on the weekend where our kids ate as a group with other kids followed by crafts and a movie. My wife and I enjoyed a nice dinner (without kids)!

The outdoor heated pool and jacuzzi were such a great way to end our day. I was nice to relax and soothe our sore muscles after a long day skiing.

We can't wait to go back to the Rustler. Thank you for an amazing vacation.

My husband and I have come here for years. It is a ski in- ski out lodge on the best slopes anywhere. Almost always have great snow. The price of the room includes an anything you want for breakfast and a fabulous 4 course dinner every night with many chioices. The staff is great. Tom, the owner, is always around and dinner at the Wasatch table with Sherman and other guests is a great way to meet other guests. Free drinks and horses d'our vessel every night. If you want to ski, not shop, thus is the only place to be. It is a short drive from the airport so you can skip on your travel days...impossible anywhere in Colorado.

Room tip: It seems that all rooms have mountain views.

Dear Lisa:
Thank you for your gracious review and kind compliments. It is an honor to host you and your husband here at the Rustler, and your wonderful company is always welcome at the Wasatch table. We agree Alta is THE place to ski, and hope to have room for you and your tall drink of water for many years to come. Our access door to door from the airport to the Rustler is without compare but we'll keep that our secret! Warm regards and hopes to see you in the near future, Sheridan Davis

The Rustler Lodge remains the top shelf, exceptionally managed operation that we have cherished over the last 30+ years.
Year in and year out their ability to deliver an extraordinary lodging, dining and skiing experience remains superb. We invade them with a large group that surely poses serious challenges to them, but they flawlessly execute our visit with a remarkably consistent first class approach.
The only thing lacking is the Rustler's failure to arrange it so that the Patriots are playing in the Super Bowl game during our visit every year, instead of the other rather uninteresting teams...but I know they're working on that for us.

We enjoy the camaraderie that accompanies your Snow Weasel group and thank you for the “exceptional” review. Indeed, we would love to arrange the most interesting Super Bowl possible for you, however, we are better prepared to help you enjoy Alta's Supreme Bowl. Looking forward to seeing you all again next year! - Rebecca Johnson

We visited the Rustler with a group of friends from throughout the US for 3 days of great skiing at Alta. The place is perfect...a bit retro, a bit rustic, great food, friendly staff. We'll definitely be back.
