Good morning.

Yesterday we had cloudy conditions in the morning with snow starting to fall once again by evening.

There's more wind this morning but some snow on the ground as well - 7cm since my last report. The forecast is for snow on and off during the day.

All of the lifts are now operating at Geto and of course all the courses open. Tree Run courses will open as soon as there is enough snow - which isn't just yet.

Regular snowfall on the forecast - looking good. It should be building up very nicely over the coming week.

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!
