Although we live in Niseko, Rusutsu and Kiroro Resorts are high on our list for places to ride and shoot. These locals favorites are less than a 1 hour drive from the Niseko resorts and offer top to bottom riding and lift service, long cruisy groomers, natural terrain features and some of the best tree skiing in Hokkaido.
This is where we often ride on our days off or when we’re shooting/filming with friends. And the best part?… they often receive more snow than the local resorts. Shhh… don’t tell anyone.
These tours are typically offered as all day tours. If you get cold or your legs get tired there are plenty of places to stop for a rest or a meal. But if you’re up for all-day shredding we’re keen as well!
