We spent a week at Rusutsu after a week at Niseko. At first I didn't get all the hype of Rusutsu. But continue reading, and you'll hopefully understand why we will make Rusutsu a regular destination for our family. Rusutsu's ski area is comprised of two skiing areas. A smaller set of runs adjacent to the Rusutsu Resort Hotel (not... More

Great place for family and intermediate skiers. There were many slopes and the views were amazing. Take a good camera on your backpack.

Rusutsu is a very good mountain and on the day we went we had a good snowfall which always helps. To be honest though we did the whole mountain in a day so I dont think that it would satisfy most people for more than a few days. Good lifts and good facilities though and a very well run resort

We enjoyed a fantastic day trip from Niseko & would have come here more had we known how good it was. Great trails and tree skiing/boarding. Uncrowded and heaps of powder to be found..... We'll be back for more...

Stayed early February 2017 for 5 enjoyable nights at the Rusutsu Resort. Ideal snow conditions and a relatively small number of skiers on-mountains made for ideal and relaxing rides. The small West Mountain was a great way to warm up the riding skills, though I preferred taking the gondola to the East and Isola mountains for the longer and more... More

I skied there for 3 days (Feb. 8th ~ 10th). Around noon time during the 2nd day (Feb. 9th), one of my skis was broken (out of order) and I just couldn't fit my boot in. I was in the East Mount base station then. Thus I have to return to the nearest rental office for repair or exchange, which... More

We had 5 days on the slopes Rusutsu and loved them all. It did snow every day at some point with one day we had a good amount and cutting through the trees we were almost thigh deep in the powder. We were staying on the Resort side and started our day on the West mountain to find our feet... More

Excellent instructors. Thanks to Marc from Canada, Cloda from NZ, Mark from UK, and Stephanie. Both my kids and my husband as well skied much better. Not inly did they improve, all of us were able to enjoy the slopes. Lots of slopes of different levels. Good snow.
