Home to Hokkaido's best tree skiing

Rusutsu, which stretches across three mountains, is a ski resort with courses to suit any ability. The breathtaking views of Lake Toya from the top of Mt. Isola are not to be missed.

How to Get There

Two hours from Sapporo or the city's New Chitose Airport, Rusutsu is accessible by bus or rental car.

For those staying in Niseko , it is an easy day trip, with various shuttle options available.

Skiing through the trees

Rusutsu's natural fall-line powder tree ski run, Heavenly area, is easily accessible between the resort's large number of lifts and gondolas. Enjoy boarding or skiing through deep bowls or along the well-groomed tree-lined courses.

Fabulous facilities

The on-site hotels and lodges offer ski-in, ski-out convenience, with other smaller accommodation options around the area. There are plenty of dining options both in and around the resort, providing the perfect way to end an exciting day in the snow.

Rusutsu in summer

The fun does not stop in the warmer months—Rusutsu's green season has a lot to offer. The base of the west mountain becomes a popular theme park when the snow melts. To slow down the pace, play a round of golf or search for one of the local artisanal bakeries.
