Good morning from Geto Kogen.

Looks like more people are finding out about the reports... we'll do our best to bring good early morning info every day. Gambarimasu!

Yesterday was a day of sun at times and cloud at others; and it was relatively mild.

This morning there's a bit of wind around again and it is noticeably colder too. Light snow is falling and there is just a little fresh snow on the ground around base.

The forecast tells us to expect conditions to clear up during the day with a chance of some clearer skies later.

Expect some hard conditions early on with the cold, and there's a chance that the Gondola might be affected by wind. Let's hope not.

Snow is forecast for tomorrow. Bring it on!

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!
