Snow falls in Southern Hemispere
15th June 2016
Resorts are opening in New Zealand, Australia, Chile, Argentina and Southern Africa. But where are the best conditions? UPDATED
And it is South America – Chile and Argentina have seen some huge snowfalls.
Up to 3m in places and one of the main border crossings in the Andes between the two countires has been closed.
And this is why.
The resort of Valle Nevado has a snow depth of 1.4m on the lower runs and 1.6m on the upper slopes ground:
It has 28 open runs and 15 of its 17 lifts are running – not bad for early season.
If anything it is even better over in Portillo.
“The snow has arrived! Over 9ft of snow has fallen inthe last few days,” said a statement from the resort.
And what about elsewhere in Chile and Argentina?
