SPEAK TO A MOUNTAIN VACATION SPECIALIST:
While the rest of North America is sweltering in the summer heat, you could be enjoying cool Andean air and nabbing refreshing face shots. The South America winter, which is opposite of North America’s, provides the opportunity for year-round skiing and unique cultural side trips. Ski Country in South America can be found in the high peaks of the Chilean and Argentine Andes Mountains.
Offering breathtaking views, the Andes are the second highest mountain range on the planet and some peaks rise well over 20,000 feet. Thanks to the high elevation, snow conditions at the ski resorts are typically awesome and most resorts boast 300-plus inches of snow annually. In Portillo—the grandfather of Chilean ski resorts—skiing dates back to 1890 and low humidity combined with a 9,350-foot base altitude assures legendary, dry snow. Located in the heart of the Chilean Andes is Valle Nevado, the largest winter resort in the Southern Hemisphere, and one of the most modern in Chile.
