Rusutsu Resort is Hokkaido's largest independently operated resort (although smaller than the combined area of the Niseko resorts) and arguably home to the island's best lift system. Most chairlifts at Rusutsu Resort are detachable quads making for quick laps and almost no lineups even on the busiest days. This hill offers a little something for everyone with moderate terrain for beginners, wide open cruisers for intermediates and an endless selection of gladed, off-piste powder for experts. There is a fair amount of accommodation at the base of Rusutsu Resort but very little in terms of night life or restaurant selection. If you are looking for this, Hirafu village in nearby Niseko is your best bet about 30-40 minutes away. The resort offers a bus and lift ticket package from Sapporo and there are a number of operators in Niseko that can provide transfers and lift tickets to Rusutsu Resort.

Visitor Reviews of Rusutsu Resort

Russ from Australia writes:

Love this place.
If you want a party atmosphere go to Niseko. We just came from there...
If you want less lines, more piste and off-piste to yourself, no attitude when going under the orange rope from crew, check this place out.
Lift ticket works out to be $50 AUD a day. Once you get it head straight to Mt Isola and ride it until you get bored. Mt Isola is the signature on piste run, but to be honest it's all about the tree runs.
Reds are pretty tame for an intermediate boarders/skiers, blacks are very short.
If you have lots of money stay at the resort. If not, there are a few (but not ample) places to stay within a 10 minute walk.
Make sure you check out the row of little restaurants right next to the hotel, you'll save stacks of money and eat great food. Pirate man was our favourite.
If you wanted a holiday without Aussies, choose another location, Australians are everywhere!
Enjoy but don't tell your mates.
