This is simply the best ski hotel in North America. It is run by people who are serious skiers, with a philosophy that embraces and emphasizes the skiing itself. It doesn't hurt that they have Alta at their doorstep, of course...but what really makes the Rustler special is the talented committed, veteran, long tenured management in every department. Somehow they...

I spent the 3 days before coming to Alta at Deer Valley. Make no mistake, Deer Valley is great. But so is Alta, especially the Rustler. In contrast to DV (with scripted "my pleasure" at every turn), the staff seem genuinely friendly and helpful. Warning- if you need luxury rooms, these are not. They are, however, perfectly functional with good...

We're so pleased you found our hospitality to be genuinely friendly, and our food to be "excellent and beautifully prepared". Our Eucalyptus steam room, sauna and hot tubs as well as our outdoor heated pool, fitness area, business center, and chairlift to and from the mountain are a few things that set the Rustler apart, but we're particularly proud that...

Staying at the Rustler Lodge the past few days was one of our most enjoyable trips ever. The food was wonderful, as was the room, especially the extremely comfortable bed. Particularly outstanding was the staff's eagerness to make our stay as fine as possible. My wife caught a cold that kept her in on our last day. The head of...

Comfortable beds and with a superior corner suite, more than enough room for four people.
