In general, how were the snow conditions in the Andes last year? One post in this forum seems to indicate that they weren't so great. I'm looking at going to Termas de Chillan, Chile and Las Lenas, Argentina around August.
But the year before was great at Las Lenas. I was there in early spring of 2002 (September) and they had to bring in prisoners to dig a path for the Marte chair. I think it was a record snow year. Who knows what this year will be? I want to know!
