After some minor snow events earlier this month, a huge storm hit most resorts in central Andes during the last couple of days.
Places like Portillo and Las Lenas got around 1.5 - 2 feet of snow, with very low freezing levels.
Valle Nevado and El Colorado reported almost 2.5 feet this morning.
Nevados de Chillan, usually one of the snowiests resorts is South America got hit pretty strong as well.
All the way south, in Ushuaia, Cerro Castor is already getting it's frequent small dumps, and things look cold enough to produce some man made snow as well.
These are some of the opening dates for SA this season:
El Colorado May -31th
Las Lenas - June 20th
Castor - June 20th
Portillo - June 22th
Another storm is supposed to bring 10 inches to Valle Nevado / Las Lenas / Portillo, and up to a foot to Nevados the Chillan this Friday.
I'm planning a trip to Ushuaia later in the season, never been there, hopefully work won't be an obstacle to skiing!
Anyone planning a trip to the Andes this season?
