It was another fine and sunny day in the Geto yesterday, which is very unlike Geto Kogen. Tops of about -4C with some scattered snow showers but mainly sunny for the most part.

We had some snow showers into the night, but today there's 3cm of snow. We’re in for a pleasant morning on the hill, mostly sunny but some scattered snow showers here and there. Tops of -3C with light winds and into this afternoon we should see the weather turn with heavy snow forecast tonight, and about 20cm of snow into tomorrow morning.

As for my previous report regarding rain on Thursday, it appears that we may only see the lower slopes get hit. But make no mistake, they will get hit with some heavy rain. On the bright side, up the top we’ll see moderate snow with about 35cm falling from Wednesday night into Friday morning - so there’s that!

Get out there and enjoy it today, if you’re getting bored of the groomers you might find you enjoy the park — start small with the little kickers and you’ll be popping double corks in no time.

Wednesday: mostly sunny with light snow in the evening (5cm) & tops of 1C
Thursday: heavy rain at the bottom and moderate snow at the top (20cm), extreme winds (110km/h) & tops of 3C
Friday: light snow (7cm), extreme winds (85km/h) & tops of -4C
