It’s dumping down south and all the early season snowfall is making for one of the best starts South American has seen in the last decade. In just 7 days, Ski Portillo has received 78+ inches. So far, the Chilean ski has seen a whopping 100″ of snow this season.
“Batten down the hatches—we’re getting buried! Everyone is asking for photos of this storm… We got bundled up and weathered the elements this morning just to snap a few pics for all of you. This is what 7 feet in 7 days looks like. #OnlyInPortillo“ – Ski Portillo Facebook Page
While Portillo is doing the best job reporting snowfall totals, Valle Nevado, El Colorado, and Las Leñas are all showing big snowfall totals over the past week. Of those resorts, El Colorado started spinning lifts at the beginning of the week and some lucky skiers and riders already have a few powder days under their belt.
