    Hey brains trust, thinking of doing a stint at Rusutsu January 2020 with our almost 4 year old kid... has anyone had experience with the ski school for similar aged youngsters ? Little one has been to Japan (Niseko) twice and had fun at daycare with snow play but was too young to ski. Going to get him on planks for a trial this australian season to get a feel for how it all goes, he is super keen. Just curious if the ski school is well set up for English language? Probably will stay at Rusutsu resort Hotel for proximity to beginner area ( and creepy singing tree )...
    Any info / experience/ tips appreciated.
    Thanks in advance !

    The resort website seems to say they do cater for 4yo but English group lessons start at 6yo. I have no experience but someone here will know. I have definitely seen English speaking instructors at a Rusutsu. Good luck. Don’t let the little guy drink too much potato juice.

    Cheers Olgreg.

    Got our quote and Rusutsu was super $$$$ on the dates we wanted because of CNY. Niseko sooo much cheaper that I just can't justify the extra outlay even though I do want to try Rusutsu.
    Will try next year on different dates. Thanks anyway. by the way what the heck is potato juice???? So far as I'm concerned the only potato juice is vodka !
