The Snow

The snow in Japan is known across the world for it’s quantity and quality – this means that when you fall over it will not hurt as much as other ski destinations that see you learning on icy, hard slopes. There aren’t many resorts in the world that can compete with over 14 metres of snow per season deposited on our slopes. Come to Rusutsu and the soft snow will help you to quickly conquer the entire mountain!

The Ski School

Rusutsu has a world class international ski school. Instructors from all over the world will teach you the basics of skiing or snowboarding in a fun and safe manner. We recommend that you ensure to book a lesson if you are planning on attempting skiing or snowboarding for the first time. An instructor is able to quickly teach you the fundamentals of the sports and will make sure that you enjoy your time in Rusutsu. Without this help it may take weeks before you can discover the excitement of heading up the chairlift and speeding around the mountains at will. Especially during peak times it is crucial to book your lesson in advance here.
