Went on a boys trip. If you like skiing, this is the place. The staff go out of their way to make you you enjoy yourself. We were there during the NCAA National Championship game, and they served us dinner at our request in the rec room in front of the game - nice job Rebecca!Above and beyond. The skiing is ski in/out - you take a little private lift to the base of lifts in either direction from a rope pull. Really convenient from anywhere on the mountain. Alta in general has no night-life, but the Rustler has a nice bar for Apre Ski. Great place - stay here if you come to Alta!

We appreciate your choosing to stay with us for your boys ski trip. "If you like skiing, this is the place" might be a future byline for us--succinct and perfect. Thank you! It is wonderful to see my colleague Rebecca receive your praise. She is terrific. We're glad you enjoyed our Eagle's Nest Lounge and the Rustler and hope to host your guys trip again when you return to Alta. Wishing you abundant snow when you do, Sheridan Davis

The Rustler Lodge has it all -- ski in/out, great food, ski store and accommodating service. I had a fantastic time at this well located lodge on wonderful Alta mountain. They accommodated me with late check out so I could use my room after my last day of skiing. Also, something went wrong with one of my boots (I brought my own boots). They were able to fix them and make them comfortable again. Will definitely return.

Superb room, space, views - got a mountain view room that was spacious and beautiful - nice décor. The program is breakfast and dinner daily, food was delicious and varied each day. Went with my husband and son and had a wonderful stay.

Comfortable beds and with a superior corner suite, more than enough room for four people. Plenty of luggage and drying space in the room and bathroom is huge (though a bit cold as there wasn't any door to close off shower space). Fill up the included humidifiers, as it makes sleeping much better. Can't remember much in the way of noise from anywhere aside from the groomers early in the morning.

Included breakfast was hearty and with a bit of cooked food variety, kept us interested for the whole week. We mostly returned for lunch as well and the food was always great. Finally dinner (again included in the rate) also had good variety and generally well executed (you definitely wouldn't go hungry here).

Tow ropes definitely a challenge for kids (mine were under 70lbs) and even my wife sometimes (she is under 110lbs) so get the free shuttle in the morning, especially if you are turning left where the end of the rope is uphill. Easy return location too. Ski shop downstairs quite comprehensive and with good service though definitely not cheap.

Comparing prices you could probably stay off property and save $300-400 per day (not a small amount) but we only ski once a year and the location and service hard to beat.

We have been staying at the Rustler for about 50 years. They have always provided for our needs with initiative and in the family style. Great skiing with easy access, great food, great accommodations, and most of all the culture is one of a skiing family in a ski lodge. Dine at the Wasatch Table and meet new friends and see old ones.

Thank you for your gracious review. Returning guests make the Rustler what it is today, and your tenure is exceptional! Thank you for making us part of your family traditions. The culture created by our guests who stay with us year after year is mirrored by the Rustler's long term family ownership and management team. Those deep connections are part of the Rustler and Alta's skiing culture and are increasingly rare--thank you for speaking to those intangibles in your review. All our guests are welcome to join our hosted Wasatch Table at dinner where tall tales may be heard between old and new skiing friends over a gourmet four course meal accompanied by a complimentary glass of wine. We look forward to hosting you this year and thank you again for capturing much of what makes staying at the Rustler so special. With kind regards, Sheridan Davis
