So far, Chile is leading the league in snowfall with Ski Portillo reporting 90″ of cumulative snow so far this season. Following close behind is Valle Nevado, which is reporting 85″.

New Zealand is currently in second place after a massive dump turned brown slopes white over the past two weeks. Argentina and Australia are bringing up the rear but there’s still a lot of season left to catch up.
