Meet the team

Peter Richer


Peter first came to Rusutsu in the winter of 2014 and fell in love with the amazing skiing. Returning for his fourth season in the winter of 2017/2018 he has developed a passion for the local area and a desire to share this with others. Peter has worked for the past three seasons with the Ski & Snowboard School, firstly as an instructor, and more recently as a Supervisor. In 2016 he founded Ski Rusutsu with the aim to improve the access to English language information on the ski resort and it’s surrounding area, and he’s only just getting started!

Flo Tawns

Creative Director

Flo’s first experience of Rusutsu was in 2014 when she worked as an instructor for the International Ski & Snowboard School. For the past three seasons she has thoroughly enjoyed skiing in Rusutsu and beyond. Her enthusiasm for photography is perfectly suited to Rusutsu’s beautiful landscape and she brings the Ski Rusutsu website to life with an amazing collection of photos. In the future Flo hopes to expand her Rusutsu portfolio and work on numerous projects with Ski Rusutsu.
