Ki Niseko Ready for a Snowy Opening Weekend

The mountain has already seen plenty of snow since it opened last Saturday (203 cm to date!), but the conditions forecast for the weekend look especially mouth-watering.

Skiers and boarders out on Thursday have enjoyed milder weather with periods of light snow, but the temperature is set to drop overnight, with the snow to come in more heavily on Friday and stay around for the weekend.

There’s a buzz around the resort as the Ki Niseko staff get ready to welcome the first guests into powder skiing heaven!

Head over to for daily snow updates.
