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!
i went their a few years ago and loved it! terrain was better then valle and it dumped while i was their, good areas to hike and fun place to stay with the thermal pools. looks like they got alot more snow then valle this year, you should go
Thinking about bagging Valle Nevado due to warm temps and lack of snow, and going to Chillian instead. Is it worth the 5 hours? Heading there 8/26 but also seeing a friend in Santiago so time is tight. Any advice fellow shredders? Gracias!
