Rusutsu Resort may be good for many things but the bar scene is definitely not one of them. There is a stuffy whisky bar with a cover charge, a formal tea lounge, and basically nowhere to relax over a drink after dinner. Apart from Cricket Bar that is, which is a faux-English (or Aussie?) sports bar that has a forlorn Wallabies jumper on the wall and loops of extreme skiing on the TV. No big open fire. No cosy atmosphere. No redeemable features at all although the live music in Jan might show they are trying. It’s half full only because there is nowhere else. The other half prob went to bed early instead.

As an Aussie I always wanted to drink here but it's always closed at strange hours.
It's a cool English pub vibe but often closed at 2:30pm

Cricket is noting fancy--but it is a convenient place to get together for a drink and snacks after skiing. Our group gathered right after skiing at 5:00pm (opening time) for hot chocolate, beer, fries and pizza. It was a nice stop before heading to the onsen (Japanese hot bath) to soak and then head someplace else for dinner. Though their English was limited--the staff were friendly and helpful.

Selling point is the location right off the Rusutsu ski area/ south tower. Good for those who want to maximise activity time and grab a quick bite.

Lunch opens at 1130 and a queue forms up before the opens. There are only 4 items on the set lunch menu when we visited - curry soap, curry, meat sauce pasta and pork don. Price is steep for the amount of
Meat served.

You need to first pay before getting a seat.

Sitting area is limited, so expect to wait if you are not in the first lot to enter.
