RUSUTSU

A quiet, fun and often overlooked resort with lots of cruisy groomed runs and hidden powder stashes. With a lack of crowds and 13 m of Hokkaido's light, dry powder makes this a real gem. A purpose built resort with hotel style accommodation consisting of the Rusutsu Tower, North and South Wings and a few log cabins all connected by a monorail. Rusutsu is unique with an added touch of Disneyland like features that include a two-story indoor Merry Go Round, Musical Fountains, and light displays. This resort is suited for those wanting quiet nightlife, epic powder and ski in ski out accommodation.

RECOMMENDATION

Don't forget your swimming togs as there is loads of fun to be had at the indoor wave pool complete with a 100 m water slide. Located in the South Wing hotel.
