    • Do you accept same-day bookings?
      Yes. It's possible as long as there is a vacancy. Bookings are accepted until 30 minutes before the lesson, as long as the participants are fully prepared to start (clothing, rental, lift pass etc.).
    • Where do the lessons take place?
      Rusutsu instructors conduct lessons on all three Rusutsu mountains. Your Instructor will guide you to the most appropriate terrain, for your skill level.
    • Can I choose an instructor?
      You can select your instructor. Please note that we may not always be able to meet your request.
  • Precautions

    ・Booking cancellations are accepted until 5:00 pm on the previous day. For any cancellation after that, 100% of the total fee is charged.
    ・ Please register at the registration office at least 30 minutes before the lesson starts. In periods of expected high demand, we encourage guests to arrive on the day before the lesson day during the winter or spring break seasons.
    ・Costs of equipment rental and lift tickets are not included in the lesson fee. Please prepare them before your lesson begins. (Lift tickets are not required for guests taking level-1 classes for the first two hours.)
    ・The registration office and the rental service areas/ticket vending machines are located away from each other. As the rental service areas are expected to get extremely crowded, we recommend moving early.
    ・If you are running late for compelling reasons, please be sure to let the registration office know. If we are unable to reach you, the lesson may begin on time. Guests taking the monorail from The Westin are advised to take special precautions.
    ・If the lift services are suspended due to inclement weather, the lessons may be modified or cancelled. Even in poor weather conditions, the lessons take place as long as there are two or more lifts in service.
    ・Cancellation based on customers' discretion may be subject to a cancellation charge.
    ・Please note that the line tends to be busy right before the lessons begin.
    ・Students are expected to be proficient in English as the lessons are provided in English. The lessons are not available in other languages.
