Rusutsu Resort review by airwalk
The snow kept coming and coming.

The top of East Mt. & Isora were super windy most of the times to the point of a white out. East Mt. is nothing but powder on top of ice it was so windy over there. Isora however, was amazing. Was on the trails for a few runs, then the rest of the weekend, only the woods. I have never had so many "first tracks" throughout all the wooded areas. It was more like surfing than boarding at times. Like the other reviews here, it is well worth it if you like to have a little adventure.

And! Aside from the conditions, good food, friendly staff, every toilet in the entire resort has a bidet :) Gotta love it.
Date visited: From 19 March, 2006 To 21 March, 2006
Snow condition on visit: Blizzard dumped knee deep powder
Things I liked: Excellent wooded area
Things I didn't like: Flat at the very bottom
