The new Vale Rusutsu is taking luxury ski apartments to the next level in Hokkaido. Opening for the first time for the 2020/21 ski season, the Vale is set to become the talk of the town in Rusutsu, and is the first step of many in a master plan to rejuvenate one of Japan's favourite ski resorts.

The apartment at the Vale are nothing less than spectacular. A sense of space and elegance greets you as soon as you walk through the door, and the apartments' Japanese design oozes with natural fibres and textures. There is a unit on offer to suit all families, from one bedroom apartments up to four bedroom penthouses, and the option of flexible interconnecting suites. Each apartment boasts spacious living area, luxurious bathrooms, and fully equipped kitchenettes that truly offer you a home away from home. The larger three and four bedroom units are well-designed with large open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas that invite families and groups to gather together over a meal or relax with a drink in the living area. For additional luxury, the penthouses boast two terraced areas, a separate library room, and private onsen. Each apartment at the Vale comes with a choice of either a western ski slope or an eastern Mount Isola outlook, setting the perfect scene for a luxurious escape.

If you can drag yourself away from relaxation, you can head to the adjoining Rusutsu Resort North/South Hotel, home to the fantastic Kotobuki onsen, a five-star spa and health facility and Base Camp, a comprehensive retail, dining and entertainment hub. Vale Rusutsu is managed by NISADE, which offers an excellent in-resort concierge and first-class customer service.

The Vale Rusutsu was in the midst of development when Scout visited Rusutsu, however we're excited to return to experience this wonderful addition to the resort. Let us know if you would like some further information or interested in booking the Vale for your upcoming Rusutsu ski trip.
