118″ inches– That’s what is currently calling for @ValleNevado this week as a huge low pressure system moves into the Chilean Andes. And while that forecast might be hard to believe, multiple resorts across Chile are forecasted to receive significant accumulations by Sunday, which should make for a group of stellar opening days down south.

Argentina on the other hand should see some accumulations this week with up to 15″ at Las Lenas by Sunday evening. Cerro Catedral should pull in around 6″ out of this storm.
