Spent a day here touring the pistes - it was late in the season and the off pistes was limited. The pistes were well maintained and wide, not much here to challenge the advanced skier, but compared to Niseko they were able to maintain the pistes on East Mountain and MT Isolated much better. We did venture early afternoon to... More

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
