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!
Super warm spring conditions here. It's been a bad season for them this year. Snow is there with decent coverage on the groomers but it is going fast.
Anything off trail looks good but ends up being crusty and icy.
Thank you Anita! Very much appreciate the tips! I've been a bit concerned about the warm temps. I'm used to freezing conditions here in New England. Looks like it will be spring riding. Not a bad thing :)
