Shitty ski resorts in Chile and Argentina? From what I've heard, there are some pretty killer ski areas in both countries that hold their own against any in the world.
To be honest the chilean resorts especially valle nevado are actually pretty decent but the argetinian ones are really outdated, just came back from bariloche and the same as always huge crowds expensive lift passes and old lifts. I heard they had an accident with one their old lifts the week before i arrived and there were seriously injured people.
But in both countries if they get a tenth of the snow u guys get in colorado is already an EPIC winter.
