Good morning from Geto Kogen.

Yesterday we had some sun at times in the morning, but after that it was mostly cloudy skies above the region.

This morning there's a bit of fresh snowfall on the ground and a light wind. It's cold. Snow is forecast for the day today turning to just cloudy tomorrow.

Today the Number 1 Gondola and the Number 1 pair lift will be operating. The remaining lifts plan to start spinning from next Saturday.

The onsen also opens from today. Always good to have a soak after a day of fun exercise on the slopes.

Hope you have a good Saturday.

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!
