Fresh snowfall measured at base since last report: 19cm (5cm overnight)

Good morning from a snowy Geto Kogen.

A good 19cm of fresh snow measured at base since yesterday with 5cm of that overnight; it was snowing for the day yesterday.

This morning the snow has eased off - it's calmer and there's even a bit of sun at times through the mostly cloudy skies. Having said that, a return to snowfall is on the forecast for this afternoon... and beyond into next week. It's looking good.

With the fresh snowfall and calm conditions this morning should see excellent conditions.

Welcome to our new Geto Kogen Now daily reports section

Geto Kogen is a ski and snowboard resort in Iwate Prefecture in the northern Tohoku region of Honshu, the main island of Japan. It’s known for heavy snowfalls, quality snow and tree run courses. Hopefully we will be able to bring you some good snowy reports through this season.

For more information on Geto Kogen please check out these pages on SnowJapan:

Resort Spotlight on SnowJapan
Basic resort details on SnowJapan

As with all our daily ‘Now’ reports, the bottom line is that they are independent and honest – they are published by us, not by the resort. The new snowfall number is being measured at the base area of the resort.

This is a brand new section involves people new to the process and so it may take a short while for us all to get used to it all. So please bear with us as we get into the gear!
