Utah hotel named Tripadvisor’s Top Mountain Resort of 2022


ALTA, Utah (ABC4) — Winter is a favorite time of year for many Utahans — and for good reason. The state’s geographic setting offers a plethora of cold weather activities ranging from ice fishing to snowmobiling. However, the Beehive State is best known for its skiing and snowboarding opportunities. Many of Utah’s ski mountains have been rated among the best in the country by global travel agencies, including Snow bag and SkiMag. This year, one of Utah’s winter getaways was ranked the #1 Mountain Resort & Lodge in the United States by Tripadvisor’s Annual Report Travellers’ Choice Awards for Hotels.

Alta Rustler Lodge in Alta tops the list of Best Mountain Resort & Lodge in America for 2022. Open only for the ski/snowboard season, this resort is a true winter wonderland.

According to reps, Alta’s Rustler Lodge is located at the base of Alta Ski Resort, a short walk to some of the “best snow in the world.” Lodge staff members stick to their value of “service above all else”. The hotel’s website calls Rustler’s dishes the best in Little Cottonwood Canyon, hand-crafted by chef Ed McCall.

Expect a cozy atmosphere when you visit the Rustler, as great effort is made to maintain the warm ambiance of the place. Despite the comfortable setting, a visit to the lodge will grant visitors access to the hotel’s long list of amenities that will appeal to everyone from luxury seekers to adventure junkies and business travelers. These include:

  • A heated outdoor swimming pool
  • Indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis
  • Ski-in ski-out access to all facilities at the base of the Alta ski lifts
  • A business center
  • A hammam and a eucalyptus sauna
  • A fitness room with picturesque mountain views
