Omg so good

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jan 25, 2020
I really don’t want want everyone to know about this gem.
We ski all the time, book condos, condo hotels etc. This the best place we have ever stayed. No cooking! No work!
No going to the grocery store. No shuttle to get ski rental .
Breakfast and dinner are included . Food is great . Everyone us helpful. Ski rental in the building. Don’t need a car. Great spa, outdoor hot tub and pool. Ski lockers right at the exit . One skis down a little hill to a rope tow that takes you to the main lift. After you are done skiing you take the rope tow back to the hotel and take the hotel’s chair lift up the hotel.
Can bring your own wine, minimal corking fee at dinner.
Coffee all day, and snacks.
You book your dinner time so there’s no wait.
Breakfast is a luxurious buffet including made to order Omelettes.
We met people who have come back here for 20 years.
Please stay away, as I want it for myself.
Ps very much an adult crowd .

Alta is one of the premier ski resorts in the US and the Rustler is the place to stay when you go, if you can afford it.
The staff's preternatural friendliness is attributable to good training and management but also to the fact that most of them get 100+ days of skiing a year. Food is well prepared and the menu changes enough to keep things interesting. Even if you are not travelling solo, try the Wasatch table. The experts in the ski shop can fit you with the right equipment to match your ability and the weather.

We visit the Rustler for four weeks a year. It is our home away from home. There are many places we could go but we decide to return to this place each year and are rewarded with a great family-like atmosphere, fantastic food and world class skiing. This outweighs anything else we could be doing with our precious time. Love it!

I stayed at ARL for 6 nights last February for a ski camp. i shared a double room in the older side of the lodge.
The hotel is well appointed, comfortable and service staff is beyond expectations. They have a breakfast/dinner included that is delicious.
I used spa services and my treatment was also excellent.
Wifi works fast
Room is clean and comfortable
2 hot tubs that can get a little crowded sometimes but fun.
Ski in and out.

This lodge is as much the experience as the skiing. Food is first class. While the furnishings are rustic as appose to plush, the services and amenities make up for it. If you like eating, this is your place.

There is no better ski experience than staying at Rustler, with its perfect ski-in ski-out access to arguably one of the greatest ski mountains in the U.S.

This long-standing ski lodge has been cleverly expanded and updated throughout the years and it is the perfect “chill” place for busy families wanting to get away from today’s hectic lifestyle. I have been staying there for the past 30+ years. I have also tried most of the other lodges at the base of Alta, and in my opinion, they don’t come close to matching what Rustler offers.

The staff and amenities at Rustler are perfect. Nothing goes wrong. The lodge maintains its informal approach while delivering the highest level of service and amenities. One never tires of the apres-ski drinks and bites nor the most comfortable bar in Little Cottonwood Canyon (with the most exceptional mountain views.)

The pool, hot tubs (one outdoor and one just inside behind brilliantly designed sliding doors) steam room, gym, sauna and spa couldn’t be nicer nor better situated for viewing the glorious mountains. The large common areas are filled with super comfortable couches and chairs, providing great places to read, relax, play games and view the mountains.

The same core staff greats you each new season and is ready to help you in anyway - always with a huge smile. They truly care about you and your entire family.

Go ahead and try a more modern approach to ski lodging in Alta, or anywhere. New stone walls may look nicer at first, but when you peel the onion, there is no place like the Rustler.

Dear Suzanne:
Thank you for your excellent review about your recent stay with us. Most importantly, thank you for your decades of choosing to make the Rustler your home away from home when you are in Alta. "Nothing goes wrong" resonates, as does your statement that we "truly care about you and your entire family." It takes a lot of work to ensure that nothing goes wrong, and it is a privilege to grow to know our guests in the years you return to stay with us. It helps that we have the best guests in the Canyon! Thank you for being part of our Rustler family. With warm regards,
