Another thick layer of snow to report this morning.

Snow was falling through the day yesterday again.

There was a lovely sunrise this morning but there's a fairly strong wind again. That might affect visibility out there with snow flying around so care is needed.

The last few days we have enjoyed some excellent heavy snow - and it's really quality snow too.

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!
