Rusutsu resort also known as the family ski resort sounds tame but in reality it's a place where hard core free style riders can feel the heaven.

The entire, two side mountain, resort has vertical everywhere so no skating the flats, the pitch is consistent although not the steepest, it ofers decent lenght carving runs.

Board park is filled with quite challenging hits, which only spells progress. The pipe is in amazing shape and with amazing over vert. There is

This is a superb place. I am a skier and the selection of runs, expanses and general layout and atmosphere of the place is just great.

Not too busy, Hokkaido snow, not tooooo far from Chitose and decent hotel at the bottom make this a really good alternative to everyones favorite (it seems) Niseko. Go there if you get the chance!

Lets Rusutsu!

Early season (mid-December) in Rusutsu was great--powder galore, no crowds, discounted lift tickets, plenty of runs.

The only downside was that not all the runs--esp the most challenging--were not open yet. Nevertheless, I was most impressed by the large variety, few people, and plenty of fresh powder.

I do Rusutsu early season every year.

Great skiers resort up in Hokkaido with some good snow and good selection of runs for pretty much everyone. Highly recommended if you can make your way up to the big island.

This resort is always amazing when I go. Tons of powder, lots of courses, and the patrol isn't that strict about going off-course. The only thing which makes me rate it at a 9 is the bottom part of the slopes are really flat, so it's hard for boarders to get to the lifts at some points without having to unstrap.

This is my second time visiting Rusutsu. This time we went there in mid December 2001. I must say that it is one of the best resorts I ve ever been. The powdery snow, the hotels being incoporated with the ski resort, the wonderful slopes and their variabilities are all my favorites. The possibilities of night skiing, the good number of resturants around and the shopping mall had certainly kept me and my wife busy during the evenings though our
