This was our first trip to the Rustler, and within minutes of arriving we knew it would not be our last. After three days, we totally understand why so many of the Rustler guests come back year after year. From the incredible location, to the super friendly staff, to the gourmet breakfast and dinner, to the pool and hot tub...

We always hope that our guests will love and cherish the unique charm of Alta and the Rustler, and your compliments confirm that you do. Thank you so much for sharing highlights of your stay, and we sincerely hope to see you again in the near future. The snow conditions are phenomenal right now. Our best to you, Sheridan Davis

The Rustler advertised as having the best lunch on the mountain and this is true. I really enjoyed taking the dedicated chair lift right to the doors of the Rustler Lodge. I has a laid-back vibe in a rustic atmosphere. Loved the facilities they had to drop off your gear in order to eat lunch.

This was my third visit in as many years, and I look forward to it all year long. The convenience and location makes it so you are skiing just ten steps after you walk out of the building. The entire staff make you feel like part of the family and go above and beyond to facilitate all aspects of your...

Thank you for returning to a place that has become a home away from home for many of our guests. We are very proud of the high quality of gourmet dining options our Chef and talented kitchen provide.

We have been skiing in Little Cottonwood Canyon for 49 years and started staying at the Rustler after we sold our condo--maybe 20 years ago. Staying at the Rustler is like staying with the perfect family. They demand nothing of you except that you enjoy yourself, and so do everything possible to make that happen. ChefandChefsWife describe it perfectly. I...

Joining us at the Wasatch Table, our long running Rustler Lodge tradition, is something we welcome every guest to do during their stay. Thank you for mentioning it as an option for everyone we have the pleasure of hosting at the Rustler. I have watched many close ski friendships grow out of an initial meeting at the Wasatch table, which...

We make our best effort to get to Alta and especially Alta's Rustler Lodge each year. There is a reason why so many reserve their room for the following year upon departure. Utah in general is our preferred destination because of the close proximity of all ski mountains to the airport, the friendlier altitude, and most of all the infamous...

Everything is perfectly comfortable but also non-pretentious. You'll see people hanging out in robes and going to dinner in slippers. I don't bring outdoor shoes because the only time I'm outside is in ski boots. The pool and spa are excellent, the food is top-notch, and the rooms are comfortable. And, of course, Alta is the best ski mountain in...

My son and I spent 4 nights at Rustler lodge. The service is second to none. I bought skis at a Salt Lake City ski shop over the phone and one of their employees actually drove to the city to pick them up for me! Food was great, in house ski rentals, lift tickets linked to room bill, great spa/pool...

Rustler cannot be beat for mountain access, attention to detail, caring staff and generally the best accommodations in the area. Having the ski shop with rentals right in the lodge is a real plus. It feels like a ski lodge, catering to the on and off needs of skiers. We come back every year and are always delighted with our...

This is the place to stay at Alta/Snowbird! I came by myself a day early before meeting up with my husband and friends. Staff here is super friendly and so helpful.

One thing I love about the Rustler is our flexibility. Flying solo, bringing a large girls group, your extended family--all are configurations that allow you to have a wonderful time in our elegant yet relaxed lodge. Thank you for your compliments, and we sincerely hope you will be back soon. Sheridan Davis

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Alta's finest ski-in/ski-out location, unparalleled personal attention and our tradition of excellence distinguish the Rustler Lodge from the rest. Enjoy our amenities, including an outdoor heated pool, indoor/outdoor Jacuzzis, sauna, eucalyptus steam room, spa services and ski shop. After a fabulous day of skiing ride our chair lift back to the lodge to enjoy the best apres and complimentary appetizers in our Eagles Nest Lounge. Our 85 rooms range from modest to luxury accommodations that include new "Comphy" linens. Daily rates include a full breakfast and gourmet dinner and FREE WIFI. The Rustler, while elegant, is congenial and relaxed, the way we feel a ski lodge should be. ... more   less
