Rustler Lodge

Alta Ski Area, UT
Rustler Lodge

Jacoby Architects designed the addition and  renovation of this 1950s vintage mountain lodge at Alta Ski Resort. The addition to Rustler Lodge included a two-story guest room wing constructed in concrete over an existing wood structure, a five-story guest room wing adjacent to the existing facility, a central concrete tower containing a new top floor bar, a spa and exercise room, a ski shop, and a new earth-covered facility including dressing rooms, a steam room, and a pool deck. The renovation included various upgrades to the existing guest rooms and remaining lodge.


In 2014, Jacoby Architects designed a further expansion to the interior spa, exterior spa deck, and additional rooms over the pool, all tucked under a planted roof meadow to maintain the ski-in, ski-out access to the lodge.
