AccuWeather is calling for a big southern winter in South American ski country due to the current El Nino this July, August, September, and October.  NOAA is calling for the same.

The building El Nino is forecast to last through Spring 2016 and potentially be the strongest El Nino on record.  That’s great for North America winter and it’s looking to be great for the South American winter that is happening right now.

August 1st until September 7th is when SASS Argentina runs their turnkey trips to Barilcohe, Argentina.  SASS Argentina is positioned perfectly to put you right in the middle of El Nino cycle and they know the spots to take the fullest advantage.

Portillo, Chile had a 6-foot storm last week.  

Las Lenas, Argentina got 5-feet of snow last week.

Bariloche, Argentina got 4-feet of snow last week.

Chile has been in a drought for about the past 10 years with it’s total rainfall adding up to less than 50% of normal.  That’s a significant drought.  This Southern Hemisphere winter has the potential to significantly aid Chile’s prolonged drought.

AccuWeather is calling for the above average precip to continue through the summer for southern South America

“There have been sporadic episodes of rain reaching as far north as central Chile during July, but by August we expect more substantial rains in that area.” – – AccuWeather Chief International Meteorologist Jason Nicholls

 

“One area of concern for flooding as El Niño strengthens and peaks is from northern Argentina to Uruguay and southern Brazil.” – AccuWeather Chief International Meteorologist Jason Nicholls
