Morning from Geto Kogen.

Another week starts with an additional 13cm of snow at base.

Early morning snow has still been falling but generally cloudy conditions is what the forecasts seem to be predicting.

There is still a bit of wind blowing around but not enough to affect operations of the lifts so it should be another good day out there.

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!

Geto Kogen Now ski lift operation notes:

All lifts and main courses open. Tree Run courses not yet open
