Morning all.

I hope I'm not boring you with more news of a lot of snow here in the region. A full 42cm of it at base since my last report.

The official snow depth number has not reached over 3m.

Yesterday we ended with snowy conditions and today will be the same again; and unfortunately wind too.

Number 1 Gondola still undergoing maintenance.

And there is nighta every evening now until 8th January.

Hope you can come enjoy it. Though come prepared for the weather!

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.

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.
