Morning from Geto Kogen, which is delivering big time at the moment.

Another 42cm of snowfall since yesterday (and 30cm of that overnight). How about that then?

It just has not stopped and it's snowing still and continuing to pile up. There's a fairly gusty wind blowing about out there too this morning, so not the most friendly of conditions. Hopefully it won't affect lifts.

Once the storm passes though it should be excellent.

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!
