Wow.  124″ of snow are forecast for Valle Nevado ski resort in Chile this weekend.  Valle Nevado had nothing but brown dirt and rocks until 5 days ago.  Now, they’re about to get dumped on and potentially be open with terrific conditions next week.

Maybe the whole “it’s gonna snow a ton this summer in South America” – El Nino thing is coming true…
