The biggest storm of the season so far is just beginning in South America, with estimated totals over the next couple of days being reported in feet, not inches.

Chile looks like it will receive the higher totals, in excess of 4-feet at some resorts, but that doesn’t mean that Argentina is being left behind, over 3-feet expected at Las Leñas, and many others around the 2-foot mark.
