Rusutsu has something for everyone. Excellent groomers on both mountains for beginners and intermediates, the quirky shopping arcade in the resort hotel, some good local eating options, and the tree skiing is sensational when it is on. Mt Isola has lots of different glades and...More

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover! The skiing here is wonderful, but the buildings have zero curb appeal. But don’t let that diminish your experience.... it was some of the best skiing we’ve ever had. The glades are exquisitely beautiful with bountiful amounts of...More

If you go skiing in hokkaido, rusutsu is a 'must do'. I would focus on the smallest side of the resort where you can find the sidecountry parks. The treeruns are awesome and very easy to reach.

Best resort in Japan. Super dry powder. It snowed every day we were there. It was VERY bus on the weekend, but quite during the week. Worth the effort getting there if you can find cheap accomodation

Unfortunately, this resort really was not worth the trip over from Hirafu. Quite aside from the shambolic 90 minute wait for tickets once we arrived, neither the terrain nor the organisation of the field is that great. The snow is amazing (but then everywhere in...More

This is an excellent ski resort. My family enjoyed our skiing here. By the way, I recommend to buy 1 day lift ticket only rather than 2 or 3 day ticket due to the unexpected heavy snow fall. When there is heavy snow fall, the...More
