A snowstorm is on its way to Patagonia—a big one. 

With historically low snowfall this year likely caused by an ongoing, decade-long drought, parts of Chile and Argentina are expecting anywhere from three to ten feet of new snow over the next five days, according to a snow forecast provided by OpenSnow.

Forecasted snow numbers for Chilean resorts over the next five days: 

Alto del Padre – 137

Nevados de Chillan – 82

Corralco Mountain – 70

Portillo – 51

Valle Nevado – 50

La Parva – 43

Forecasted snow numbers for Argentinian resorts over the next five days: 

Las Leñas – 78

Cerro Bayo – 39

Cerro Catedral Alta Patagonia – 38

Hopefully, this is a solid chance for these Patagonian ski areas experiencing relatively low snow numbers this season to catch up on much-needed snowfall.
