Morning from Geto Kogen on this first day of 2021.

Mega snow once again. The resort is reporting close on 1m of snow on the upper areas of the mountain. That is an impressive way to start the year.

Snow all day yesterday and more snow this morning. With snow forecast for the day. And probably snow tomorrow too. (Enough snow yet?)

It is really cold out there too.

Night skiing through Sunday.

New Year message from SnowJapan

The 2020-2021 winter season seems to have got off to a good start in many mountainous regions of Japan, with some areas enjoying some very heavy snowfalls. That is of course very encouraging to see. Even if you are having to look on from afar, we’re sure you will be glad to see a return to a more ‘normal’ pattern to the snowfall this winter.

So 2020 is now behind us and we surely all hope that 2021 will be an all-round better year for everyone.

If you are unable to be here...

We miss you and are sorry that you can’t be here, but hope that you will be able to visit Japan in the not too distant future; and that 2021-2022 season will be open for everyone to enjoy.

If you are here...

Let’s all keep doing everything we can as individuals to try and keep the current situation under control. Ski areas around the country are doing their best to encourage visitors to wear face coverings, keep distance and minimise contact with guests outside their own group. Helping out in that way is surely a very small price to pay to get to enjoy the snow.

One thing we have noticed this season is people mentioning how they are appreciating everything that extra bit more this year. Being thankful for the good things can’t be a bad thing.

We will continue to do what we can to remain positive and genki as we cover this season.

Wherever you are right now, stay safe, stay strong and take care.

SnowJapan wishes you all the best for 2021.
