Dude, dont come to south america it just sucks save urself some time and money and go somewhere in europe, us, japan or even new zealand.
Its just expensive, the lifts are old, runs are badly mantained and doesnt snow that much too.
Oh shut it with the "locals" attitude. The op has already chosen a spot. I seriously doubt you are going to see a huge increase in crowds from the huge uptick in international travel. Keep in mind these are the people that keep the bullwheels spinning for you. You can always do what I did and quit using ski areas. Crowds, ski area problems...
