Rusutsu, Hokkaido, Japan

Villa Rusutsu is a boutique mountain lodge development at the base of the Shiribetsu Mountainm famous for backcountry and heli-skiing.

In addition to 9 well appointed Canadian log Villas, the estate offers a restaurant, bar, lounge and large Japanese-style communal onsen hot spring bath all within the park development.

Privacy, convenience and self-contained luxury combine within Villa Rusutsu, to provide a memorable holiday experience, which is ever so slightly distinct from the immediate oddities of the resort itself.

A cozy, homely feel is apparent within every 1- to 2-bedroom villa.

There are 3 villa types to choose from, for groups of 3 to 5 people respectively. Each standalone standard villa building is split into two apartments, each with their own entrance onto a shared terrace.

There is only one luxury villa in the estate, and this one makes an extra special getaway. There is a luxurious living space with fireplace, a private en-suite toilet with shower and a jacuzzi style bath.

You can enjoy all the facilities at the Rusutsu resort village, with restaurants, shops and entertainment galore. Or head towards Rusutsu Village, a short 10 minute drive away from the Villas.

The Villa Rusutsu estate is right next to the Rusutsu hotel complex. The walk to the lifts is 20 minutes, or a short 3-minute drive.

Niseko, Hokkaido, Japan

A world-class ski destination, Niseko receives 14m of snow per season on average. Offering 38 lifts, 4 developed, inter-linked resorts, 47km of groomed slopes, 1000m of vertical, and the longest run stretching 5600m, Niseko is the largest of Hokkaido’s ski areas, and overall the most well-rounded winter resort on the island.
There is a good mix of groomed runs for all levels, from first-timers through expert powder hounds. There is also a terrain park with half-pipes, table tops, round quarters and rails etc… a variety of terrain to suit boarders of different abilities.
That being said, novices going down the slope for the first time may want to avoid the crowds in peak powder season and consider some of the quieter times (spring).
