Just four days after a sizable April snow storm hit the central Andes ski resorts of Argentina and Chile, another round of snow, this time coming in colder, has blanketed the South American resorts from Las Lenas to northern Patagonia. Santiago, Chile recorded on April 25, 2016, it’s coldest April day in 15 years as the thermometer hit a chilly 2.6 Celsius. Normal minimum temps for April in Santiago generally hover around 10 Celsius.
With just under two months before the normal kick off dates for the Southern Hemisphere ski season, things are off to a great start as the base continues to build and signs of a strong predicted winter continue.
