This is from after the storm on Aug 26th - 2.5 ft!  Next couple days were warm bluebirds and melted a lot.  After we left they must have had a lot more snow since it poured in Santiago all day yesterday, which certainly means snow up in the Andes.  Valle Nevado was great!  That despite a poor snow year.  The staff were super nice and the food was awesome (and free at our hotel as well!).  Fun mountain though I wish they'd expand even more to really interconnect El Colorado etc and add lifts where there are rope tows (though those were fun once I got the hang of it on my board).  Hope to be back!  Love Valle Nevado!

Valle Nevado snow was fine today. A little wet near base but not too sticky. It was beautifully sunny and warmer early in the day. Afternoon cloud cover dropped temperature enough to add a layer back. Views were nice. It is nice to ski in August but it is a long slow windy hike up from Santiago. Get an early start!  Tour busses arrive noonish. So take a private car and leave early to avoid mountain traffic jams ensure a full day of skiing.

decent coverage for early in season. a little icy on morning but softened during day. steeper runs need more snow,  but still worth the trip from Santiago.
