Four years ago, I wrote a review stating emphatically something I had known for years: The Rustler is unquestionably the best lodging experience to be had in Little Cottonwood Canyon. Well, it still is! In fact, it offers the best lodging experience we ever have in the world of skiing — and we have skied in many, many places over the years.
At first blush, the all-in price for a week at the Rustler may appear high, but once you assign a value to the incredible meals (breakfast and dinner) included in the price, it can qualify as bargain. I can’t speak for all the rooms, as there are a number of different types of rooms. However, if you don’t feel you have to have a “view” from your room, the Superior North rooms that we’ve stayed in on our last three visits are fantastic. They are large, beautifully furnished and, above all, exceedingly well lighted (a rarity in today’s hotels). Oh yes, the service at the Rustler is also impeccable.
Finally, both Alta and Snowbird offer some of the world’s best skiing, but if, like us, you rather prefer Snowbird, no problem. You can easily ski both from the Rustler. If you don’t want to buy a combined ticket to ski from one to the other, the Rustler has a shuttle that will take you to Snowbird and pick you up at the end of the day. More
