Great Guys Trip
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Feb 20, 2022via mobile
The Rustler is just the best for the full Alta experience. The staff are super accommodating and personable, the food top notch and you can not get any better than sleeping one pole-push from the first chair. Our guys trip was great - soaking in the pool watching the sun drop behind the mountain with a cold beer looking up to see your track (or pretending to see your tracks!) can not be beat.

This was my 12th or 13th stay at the Rustler, it is consistently great, you cannot beat the ease of access from SLC airport (via the Alta Shuttle), great rooms, bar, dinner and last but not least, outdoor pool & hot tub. Having breakfast & dinner included makes it a hassle free, relaxing stay. Great in house ski shop as well.

The Rustler is a close as you can get to a home on the slopes on the best Skiers Mtn in the world - Alta but even better because you don’t have to cook or clean! The staff are across the board incredibly kind and the service is amazing. It’s like a big family and they welcome you in such that you feel part of this family. The food is amazing - I think I gained at least five pounds despite skiing all day every day. You just can’t help yourself from eating a lot because the food is that delicious. The spa, pool and all public spaces were extremely clean and comfortable. The lounge is the best place to hang out apres ski and relax with a drink by the fire and watch the incredible sunsets and views of the mountains. The rooms were very nicely appointed, the bed and linens were so comfortable! The bathrooms super clean with high end finishes. I have been to the Rustler several times over the past 40 years and I am so happy to say that it hasn’t changed a bit except the accommodations and the food have just gotten better. Can’t wait to go back!

Room tip: Take the Alta shuttle from the airport. Excellent service! Make dinner reservations in advance for your first two nights.

Everything about my stay at the Rustler was exceptional! I especially enjoyed ending each ski day in the heated pool. The views of the Eagle’s Nest terrain across the way allowed for fun stories of the day and planning lines for days to come!!

One of the best things about staying at the Rustler is the opportunity to tell some true or tall tales about your skiing prowess in a beautiful setting over a craft cocktail or our gourmet meals. I'm glad you didn't miss this highlight while you stayed with us. Looking forward to hearing more about your skiing adventures during your next visit,
