If you go

The Denver Post - - TRAVEL -

There are plenty of flights be­tween Den­ver and Salt Lake. It’s pos­si­ble to snag a roundtrip ticket for around $200. Flights are about an hour; driv­ing to Alta is around 8 hours. Shut­tles to Alta are rel­a­tively cheap, so rent­ing a car isn’t nec­es­sary.

Less than $100. Alta is also on the Moun­tain Col­lec­tive pass (around $400, de­pend­ing on time of pur­chase), which in­cludes two days each at 14 re­sorts across the coun­try, in­clud­ing Snow­bird (next-door to Alta), plus Taos, Aspen and Tel­luride, and re­sorts in Canada, Ja­pan, Aus­tralia, New Zealand and Chile; ev­ery day af­ter the two is half off.

Like most of the lodges at Alta, the Rustler is a one-stop shop that in­cludes a rental store and a restau­rant that serves din­ner and break­fast (price in­cluded with your room). Suites go for up­wards of $500 a night; dorm rooms — with bunk beds and a shared bath­room — are un­der $200 dur­ing the reg­u­lar and shoul­der sea­sons. 10380 E County Hwy 210, Alta, 801-742-2200, rustler­lodge.com
