I live in Hawaii on an island with basically no COVID and was very hesitant about taking a ski trip to the mainland. However, given my 20-year relationship with and trust in managers Tom and Kate at Alta's Rustler Lodge and their high-level precautionary COVID protocols laid out for the season, we went for it.
I'm so glad we did. Masks were worn by guests and staff at all times, social distancing was practiced, there were daily temperature checks at breakfast and every aspect of our experience there was as comfortable and safe as it could have been. We did room service our first night as we were easing into the notion of being in a hotel, but then opted for the dining area for the remainder of our stay after seeing just how well run the whole operation was.
I could gush on endlessly about our time there, but will end with my gratitude for the efforts of the entire staff (and fellow guests!) in creating a safe environment during these unusual times.
Bonus: it snowed 3ft in 3 days and we had some epic skiing!More
