Located on Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido, Rusutsu Resort is one of the best places to experience skiing and snowboarding Hokkaido’s famous light dry powder along with the luxe resort lifestyle. It is one of the most popular and upmarket resort hotels in Hokkaido, offering a variety of accommodation options and an endless array of quality facilities and services.

Rusutsu’s slopes are spread over two distinct ski areas and spanning 3 peaks, the highest of which is Mt Isola, 994m high. From this peak on a clear day, you get a stunning panoramic view of Mt Yotei, Lake Toya and the Pacific Ocean. When it’s overcast and the views are not on offer, rest assured there will be powder to ride as it will typically be dumping in Rusutsu. The areas are connected by gondola and lifts, part of which make up the 18 lifts and 4 gondolas to enjoy alongside the terrain park, side country park, night skiing, and some of the best fall-line tree-skiing and snowboarding in Hokkaido.

A top quality ski resort with easily accessible and well connected slopes, paired with first-class resort hotel facilities and comforts, Rusutsu is a truly unmissable ski and snowboard destination.

The comprehensive resort hotels have world class facilities and services including 8 restaurants, bars and coffee lounges, 22 specialty and boutique shops, and 2 convenience stores. If skiing and snowboarding isn’t enough activity for you, or for those accompanying skiers but don’t partake in the sport themselves, you can still enjoy the indoor wave pool and 100m waterslide, two large bath-houses, gymnasium hall with indoor tennis courts, massage service, and game centre.

The facilities are spread across the north and south wing building and the Westin Resort. Guests are free to use the facilities in each, and the building are conveniently connected by monorail, shuttle bus and even close enough to walk.

The Westin Rusutsu Resort and North/South Wings are the two predominant resort hotels available at Rusutsu. The Westin offers luxury accommodation with spacious, comfortable split level rooms that cater towards those who want just a little more than a room to relax in, and high end service and facilities.

The main resort hotel is divided into the North and South Wing Hotels with most of the rooms enjoying great views of the surrounding mountains and alpine vistas. The rooms are western style with twin bedding and ensuite bathroom, and offer direct access to slopes as well as shopping, entertainment and sporting facilities.

Dining is an experience in itself with so many restaurants to choose from the decision is always going to be difficult. Entertainment is what this hotel is famous for, with its bustling shopping mall, sports facilities including a indoor wave pool and waterslide, game centres, lounges and bars. All this complemented with the largest ski resort in Hokkaido guarantees an exciting and memorable stay.
