Rusutsu Resort is one of the most famous ski resorts in Hokkaido. It is situated 79km west of Sapporo close to Niseko and the extinct volcano Mt Yotei. The resort itself is a modern day mecca consisting of every possible facility to keep just about everyone entertained. The peak of Mt Izola offers the best terrain with long and challenging runs combined with panoramic scenery. The lift network is spread over 3 peaks offering a wide variety of terrain catering to all levels of skiers and snowboarders and the best tree-skiing in the area. Plenty of other activities other than skiing can be enjoyed such as dogsledding, snowmobiling, snowrafting and tubing.

Rusutsu is a wonderful full-scale resort experience amidst the beauty of the vast highlands with winter being the most special season. The resort is generally uncrowded and therefore the powder is more plentiful! Visitors to Rusutsu are constantly overwhelmed with its spectacular views and scenery. The unassuming village of Rusutsu has a handful of smaller local restaurants and bars which are packed with character and charm!
