The Westin Rusutsu Resort

The first Westin located in Hokkaido, this resort offers unique services to help make your stay a luxurious, relaxing one. The Westin is easy to access: it takes about 5 minutes to reach Rusutsu Resort Hotel & Convention, the Amusement Park, and West Mt. by monorail.

The Westin Rusutsu Resort is all about Well Being and there are 6 pillars that will restore your energy! Sleep Well, Eat Well, Play Well, Feel Well, Move Well and Work Well.   The Westin Rusutsu Resort is the ski-in/out resort that won the award for Japan’s Best Ski Hotel 2019 at the World Ski Awards. This is the third consecutive year and the fourth time in which The Westin Rusutsu Resort has clinched this prestigious award.


Located between the West Mountain and the East Mountain, the Westin towers over the landscape. Amazing views from every room, so please remember to keep your camera handy! In winter the golf course which surrounds the hotel is covered in a blanket of white. You can take the smooth monorail to West Mountain or the short lift directly to the East Mt. base area.

The Westin Rusutsu Resort has a strong focus on eating well and you will surely enjoy the variety of food choices. The delicious lunch menu is a favorite with many non-staying guests who visit for a hearty meal after skiing! Just look at that selection of desserts at the dinner buffet!

Rusutsu Resort Hotel & Convention

Do you like to be right in the middle of the action? Need to be close to everything? Ski-in/out, shopping, dining, convention center, and many activities? Then why not stay at the Rusutsu Resort Hotel & Convention.

Stretching the length of the base area on the West Mountainside you will find the Salomon Rental center at the far southern end and the brand new Onsen on the northern end. Shopping, dining, and many activities can be found throughout the Resort Hotel area.


Rusutsu Resort has so many ski areas that you are probably starting to get a sense of the magnitude of this multi-faceted resort. Have another look at our trail map to grasp the bigger picture!


Step outside the Rusutsu Resort Hotel and Convention for ski-in/out access to the lifts, or take the gondola across the road to East Mountain. Shopping arcade and indoor merry-go-round and fun events such as the New Years’ and Christmas fireworks display! There is a lot to see and do each and every day!


Rusutsu Resort Hotel and Convention feature over 9 different room types to suit your group or family-style, from mountain view Junior suites to twin and triple rooms. There are Japanese style rooms with tatami and even cottage style log cabins.

The West Mountain is by far one of the most family-friendly snow areas in Hokkaido. Slopes designed for every level, a large rental center, easy and fast lift service and you might even be able to spot some sheep as you ski down the course. Why not stop and feed a carrot to the hungry pony?


Log House and Cottage

Log cabin more your style? Shown here is one of our largest cabins, nestled amongst Hokkaido fir trees, just outside the Resort Entrance.

Lots of rustic charm and a large woodstove will welcome you into the living room area of this classic log cabin! You will be transported back to a simpler time, but don’t worry all the great convenience of the resort is just a few steps away!

The larger Rusutsu log house can accommodate up to 24 people! There is something very special about relaxing in front of an open fireplace with your family and friends while reminiscing on the day’s adventures on the mountain. The flickering flames and spicy smell of wood smoke from the chimney seem to slow down the sense of time and provide you with a chance to truly unwind and enjoy!

Rooms, shopping, and dining are all equally important when choosing a resort, but don’t forget why we all want to visit Hokkaido’s number 1 resort! The powder snow! Rusutsu is famous for the quality and consistency of its snowfall! Thanks to its location on a high plateau and many deep valleys on East Mountain and Isola 2000, Rusutsu catches the snowfall regardless of where the storms come from.   The beautiful Lake Toya also provides ample moisture to create that amazing snow that sticks to everything and forms unique snow monsters and huge pillows!
