The Ski Season has returned to South America. All of the major Ski resorts in Argentina and Chile have benefited from recent snow storms, with over a meter of fresh snow in just the first few days of the season. As a result, at all the major ski resorts there is fantastic skiing to be had!

NOTE: If you are planning to ski in the Southern Hemishere in 2020, check the resort is open for skiing before you make plans or travel. I have heard that due to COVID-19, Las Lenas is not going to open at all in 2020.
