Good morning from Geto Kogen.

Just 1cm of fresh snow on the ground at base to report to you this morning.

Yesterday was a feel good day with decent weather, temperatures keeping fairly low and snow conditions keeping good.

This morning light snow started falling with snow forecast on and off during the day today and some periods of clearer weather as well. Sounds like it should be mixed and I wouldn't expect much in terms of snow.

The forecast is still looking good starting tomorrow and going into next week - particularly around Monday.

The Number 1 pair lift will be joining the Gondola for operations tomorrow and Sunday. The other lifts will join the party from Saturday 16th.

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!
