Chile and Argentina was just hit with a large Autumn storm bringing rain, snow and wind to the popular Andes ski destinations of Portillo, Valle Nevado, El Colorado, La Parva and Las Lenas. Here are some images we have gathered from the main ski resorts. Autumn is off to a solid start with hopes of ski resorts opening as early as May this season. More snow is expected to arrive this weekend. Now is a good time to start considering your summer snow adventure down south.

What to expect in Chile and Argentina for snow in late April, May and June
As we recently reported, forecasts for snow in South America is looking good for 2016. So far the weather experts seem to be on track. Santiago, Chile has seen well over 10 times the norm for rain in April (not to mention the snow that fell above 3,000 meters), and another cold front looks as if it could arrive this weekend to all major ski destinations in Chile and Argentina.
Yes it is still early, but these are all welcome storms as the South American winter season nears.
