Winter is getting into full swing throughout the Southern Hemisphere. So far, Chile has the big winner with Ski Portillo receiving 90″ cumulative and maintaining a 42″ base. Valle Nevado also claims to have an 87″ base, which is the deepest in the Southern Hemisphere. New Zealand has also started to have a decent season after a good storm last weekend. They still need a few good dumps to really get the season going. Austrailia is really struggling this winter, as Mt. Buller has the deepest base in Austrailia at only 15″.
