Good morning.

Yesterday it was snow on and off through the day (on in the morning; off in the afternoon; back to on in the evening!)

As a result I have another 12cm to report. So not massive amounts but a decent top up once again and the base continues to build nicely.

Early on this morning was fine, but as this report is being written now there is more cloud appearing and snow is on the forecast once again. We might see a break from the snow for the rest of the week after today - wouldn't be bad to have a day or two of fine and sunny conditions!

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!
