Ideal for a larger family group or a well-picked collection of good friends, its cosy atmosphere and high quality finish is sure to provide any holiday maker with a relaxing experience to remember.
Exceptional snow quality and consistency has slowly propelled the charm of Rusutsu into the forefront of snow-obsessed travellers’ minds from around the world. With an average of around 11m metres of fresh snow every season, powder here is unlike anywhere else in the world, and its beauty astounds even those who don’t care for riding it. Yumeyama’s floor to ceiling windows provide the perfect frame to witness this incredible snowfall from the indoor comfort of a cosy living room, providing a memorable experience and a relaxing atmosphere for anyone lucky enough to visit.
High ceilings and a Hokkaido pine finish create a neutral and natural aesthetic within. A fully equipped kitchen allows for the preparation of home-cooked meals and snacks if a wintery walk to any one of Rusutsu’s nearby restaurants feel like too much of a challenge, and it features all of the Western appliances expected. A drying room for ski gear extends the convenience of life within Yumeyama, and for those feel playful after a day in the powder, a separate entertainment room packed with games is available to see out fun nights in. If relaxing is more of a priority however, a large open fire sets the scene for peaceful evenings in Yumeyama’s beautiful shared living area. Wifi also runs throughout the chalet.
Western style beds can be found in 3 out of 4 of the chalet’s bedrooms. The 4th room features a more traditional style of sleeping arrangement specific to Japanese culture, which includes the laying of futon bedding directly onto woven bamboo mat flooring. It’s a comfortable way to sleep, which also delivers a cultural experience to anyone spending time in Yumeyama. A further 3 bathrooms and 1 guest toilet allows for privacy within the chalet, maintaining a sense of ease within this tension-free accommodation option in Rusutsu.
New developments like Yumeyama are extending the reputation and building on the quality of Rusutsu as an international ski resort. In doing so, such chalets provide an alternative to the dominant hotel culture that Rusutsu has become famous for across Hokkaido – offering exclusivity, privacy and luxury for those who do not wish to stay in any one of the quirky developments found elsewhere in Rusutsu.
Yumeyama is a short 15 minute walk from one of the entrances to the larger hotel, which is also the location for ski lift access, other exciting activities and a number of eating options. The chalet’s location offers quiet mountain views whilst maximising the facilities that this fantastic resort has to offer – and what with Rusutsu being just a 90 minute transfer from New Chitose Airport, it’s a fantastic option for a winter holiday to remember for a lifetime.
