For those who want to head out on a snowmobile there are several courses within the Rusutsu Resort area - the beginners course will only take you five minutes, the touring course is longer at 20 minutes and then there are the adventure courses, taking 50 minutes. Instruction is on-hand should you need it and anyone over 7 years of age can participate (i.e. drive) on the beginners course. You need to be over 13 for the longer training course and the longest courses require that you are over 16. As common sense suggests, drinking then driving is a no-no.
