Visitor Reviews of Rusutsu Resort

Rueben from Australia writes:

Rusutsu used to offer a great family ski environment with no apres. Over the years it has increasingly gotten busier with bus loads of rude Europeans and ugly Australians doing day trips from Niseko which was really noticeable in 2014. Where once you could get fresh tracks lasting days it is now tracked within 1/2 day.
For those chasing a quieter resort their are better options.
In comparison to other international resorts it still can offer an excellent trip. Everyone just needs to relax a little and take a leaf from the locals and have some respect for others.
