Hello and good morning.

11cm of fresh snow on the ground at base since my last report so not as much as we have been getting but respectable all the same and a nice top-up. That came from the snow clouds moving in yesterday afternoon. They are still with us this morning and it is snowing this morning - with a fairly strong wind once again. Perhaps it will stop by this afternoon and calm down. For now though visibility is limited out there and care required.

Should be a fine upcoming weekend if you are in the area.

All of the ski lifts are scheduled to be operating from 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!

Geto Kogen Now ski lift operation notes:

Gondola operating. Other lifts will be operating from tomorrow.
