The lifts remain stationary at resorts in South America while the snow piles up on the slopes in what locals are saying is the best snowy start to a season in 15-years.

✨ Beautiful day gives us the mountain range ⛄️❄️ what was so lacking in our mountain 🏂🏔⛷ It has not snowed in this way for 15 years and we are happy to break this type of record 😄. We are closed because the sanitary conditions are not yet safe and we want to protect those who love snow, so access to our slopes is not allowed, in addition to the last snowfall there are great probabilities of avalanches and the systems of security enabled. # QuédateEnCasa so that later we can enjoy the gifts of nature. #ElColorado #LaCapitalDeLaNieve #CordilleraDeLosAndes #Chile

El Colorado Resort, Chile

Many resorts are not opening at all this season due to restrictions in place for the coronavirus pandemic. Argentina will not be allowing flights into the country until at least September 1st. Las Leñas and La Hoya have both confirmed they will not be opening this winter.

Meanwhile, it continues dumping.

Ironically, last season was one of the worst in recent history, forcing many resorts to close early due to lack of snow and making many wish they hadn’t taken the flights out there.

How they’re wishing they could this year.

We were silent hoping to surprise you 🤫 125 cm of snow is the count we have taken so far! And still falling snow! 🤭 We want to enjoy the snow with you again 🏂⛷️. Stay home to overcome this wait as soon as possible. #inviernitis #ViveValle #stayhome # ViveLaMontana

The season usually begins mid-to-late June, running through until September. 

SnowBrains has spent the previous eleven seasons in Bariloche, Argentina, and will miss it immensely this year. Even more so now…
