I am sure there are scientists out there that can explain this more thoroughly. But we know that this will be a very good season for snow in Chile. El Niños only come around every seven or eight years, so it's better to not miss them.
If you are thinking about booking a trip to Chile, this is a good bet. I of course wish you would come ski with me; but honestly, it doesn't matter where you go. I am thrilled at the prospect of my friends at El Arpa and Portillo having a good season – it's been a while. Valle Nevado will be abuzz, for sure. Las Leñas will have some epic days. Powder South will deliver some banner skiing. And if all of these are too busy or 'typical' for you, you know I will be around to deliver something unique. No matter what, I would invest in the ticket.
