Rusutsu has a large ski area that covers three mountains, each having a variety of long runs with a good mix of groomed trails, great powder and tree runs. It is located close to Lake Toya (Toyako) and is just on the other side of Mount Yotei from Niseko.
At the base of the ski slopes stand two large hotels, the Rusutsu Resort Hotel and the highrise Westin Rusutsu Resort.
Several small pensions can be found in the nearby town center of Rusutsu.
Besides skiing, Rusutsu Resort offers numerous other attractions, including restaurants and shops, pool facilities – including an indoor wave pool – and hot spring baths.
