206-Inches of SNOW forecast on the upper mountain at Valle Nevado, Chile in the next 4 days...
232-Inches / 19-feet of SNOW forecast on the upper mountain at Valle Nevado, Chile in the next 4 days…

Whoa.  Valle Nevado ski resort in Chile’s upper mountain is forecast to receive 19-Feet of Snow (232 inches) in the next 4 days according to snow-forecast.com.  

19-feet of snow?  In 4 days?  Are you kidding me?  Maybe this El Nino thing really is going to happen this year in South America.  Central Chile has been in a drought for the past 7 years.  Maybe this will be the year that hugely aids that drought situation and makes the skiing all time.

Snow forecast for the Andes mountains of South America showing over 10-feet of snow in central Chile.  Arrow and circle indicating central Chile where the ski resorts such as Valle Nevado, El Colorado, and Portillo are forecast to get huge amounts of snow.

Maybe this will be the year that everyone has been waiting for.  Maybe this will be the year that we will be talking about for decades to come.  Maybe this is the year you should be coming down to South America…

Valle Nevado, Chile is going to look like this again soon...

  1. ULLR is casting his charm and largesse upon that part of the skiing world. Be advised that snorkels are a required piece of equipment, perhaps an oxygen mask with a small tank in the backpack will help when the adrenaline slows down after being completely submerged for a few turns. Even tho’ I no longer ski, I vividly remember the experience of bottomless powder in Jupiter Bowl thanks to the kindness of Bob Bailey one January morning in 1977. Everyone enjoy.

  2. We have been all over Chile for two weeks and only had big dump at Navados De Chlllian and they couldn’t handle the snow. Shut the place almost down for two days.

Got an opinion? Let us know...
