Good morning from Geto Kogen.

Fresh snowfall measured at base: 0cm

A little light rain later on in the day yesterday that changed into sleet later on at night as things remain relatively mild for the moment.

This morning there's quite a strong wind blowing but the sun is out in places though there's still a lot of cloud around. A feel good early winter morning and if the wind behaves it should be a nice day to be out on the slopes.

Looks like the next snowfall is due later tomorrow and Thursday. Keep an eye on the forecast with the blue tab up top.

Until tomorrow!

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!
