Took a day trip from Hirafu to ski Rusutsu. Need to book at Welcome center, ¥8600 include bus fare and 1 day ski pass. Good value, considering an All Mountain Pass at Hirafu is about the same. There are 2 ski areas in Rusutsu: East Mountain and West Mountain. Only had time to ski the East- long runs, plenty of nice trees area for the immediate skiers. Much quieter than Hirafu.

Absolutely fantastic - huge resort with everything under 1 roof. Husband didn’t ski but did not feel a minute of boredom in the 7 days we were there compared to tomamu where we went last year. No crowds or queues and the slopes were so wide - great if u are a beginner like me afraid of being hit by people skiing down the slopes . So many gondolas to take u to different slopes to try out and even some for people who didn’t Ski, like hubby - expanse of beautiful countryside to view from the gondolas . My 10 year old loved it so much especially the ski school which was reasonably priced . Amusement arcade, workshops and gorgeous outdoor onsen made the days fly past so quickly! Only down point was there were no adult group classes in English so I was forced to take a one on one class which was really expensive . We are considering going again next Xmas .

Our family of four visited this and everyone had fun! I rode the Hurricane coaster which was a bottomless coaster ride and was particularly thrilling! I also enjoyed the Loop on Loop and Standing Coaster rides which were excellent! I was a bit disappointed though that the Ultimate Twister was closed today. But the resort was well done and while not huge, it was well laid out with many thrilling rides. The price of ¥5000 yen was also not bad. Food was OK.

I loved skiing at Rusutsu but I was disappointed with the resort, which was very, very, very expensive - I've never paid so much for a room in my life, so I had high expectations, which were not met. Having the toilet downstairs from the bedroom was definitely NOT a perk. It's a nice resort, but way overpriced. The onsen was lovely.

Big ski resort with 4 types of accommodation, i.e. Westin, North Wing Hotel, Log House and Travel Lodge. Staying at Travel Lodge, we could also use free-of-charge facilities of the main resort such as shuttle from Sapporo, South-wing onsen, Carousel as well as Westin's onsen, which was the highlight of our trip. We could choose any breakfast venue as we liked among those at North Wing and Westin as listed in the leaflet received at the time of check-in. Although Travel Lodge is really dated as mentioned in the hotel website, location wise, this building is perfectly located, only a few steps from in-house monorail station and right at the center of the whole hotel building blocks. Convenient to find shops to eat at reasonable price, close to everything. Only a few number of restaurants were open for lunch, though. More places during dinner than lunch time including bars with live music. Mini-mart within the hotel was offering drinks and souvenir items at good prices too. We are not ski-ers ourselves, so we did not do skiing or snowboarding. Snow activity center was very informative, helpful and easy to contact for snow-play activity booking. It was a shame that all gondolas were not operating the day we stayed due to bad whether but that fortunately allowed us to walk around the hotel building and appreciated the super nice scenery instead. There is convenient store (7-11) closed to Travel Lodge and the Resort's Parking area but quite a distance and difficult to get to during snowy winter. The in-house Food Court offers variety of dishes but a bit hard to find (no clear sign leading to it) and most shops are not opened late at night. Highly recommended for one-stop ski resort experience. Will definitely go there again for Japan's winter holiday.
