Visitor Reviews of Rusutsu Resort

Joe from Australia writes:

Rusutsu is amazing. For whatever reason, the locals don't seem to enjoy riding off-piste - so it's fresh tracks all day for those that do!
No lift lines, very cruisy atmosphere and amazing tree runs. Probably steeper than Niseko but less vertical overall, and fresh tracks for most of the day - it is often tracked in Niseko early in the day in peak season.
Stay in Niseko and hit up Rusutsu (and Moiwa!) for regular day trips and you will not be disappointed!
