Here is a trip report from Chile August 13th to August 26th 2010.
I met Liv4Ski (Dave) at the Santiago airport Aug 14th in the around 9 am. We then drove up to Valle Nevado for afternoon skiing. Next we hooked up with CASA tours. We skied at Portillo for 1 day, then Ski Arpa for 2 days, then El colorado for 1 day, then Valle Nevado for 1 day, then La Parva for 1 day. Most of these days wre filled with freeze thaw coral reef death snow. With that said, we had a great time. It was surreal to be skiing in August.
Next we split apart fro the tour and rented a car to drive to Nevados De Chillan.
Its amazing what 5 hours South can do. When we got there it was raining, but the next morning we had reports that it was snow ing at the top all night. We had three great days here. It was one of the coolest places that I have been to.
