Southern Hemisphere
Has anyone ever been to Portillo, Chile? Or anywhere else in Chile/Argentina for that matter? I am looking into a trip to South America sometime in August and am wondering what mountain is the best in terms of snowfall and intermediate/advanced terrain?

Thanks for the help.

Check for SASS... it is a camp in Argentina, but the location seem great and they are a few resort around there... you can also look at Catedral Alta Patagonia in Argentina...

August is great as the sun set around 7h00pm and the snowfall are usually good.

I really want to take a trip down there this summer... but sadly, I will probably be too busy working my ass off to save up for next winter :(

Thanks for the info Lousixyz. I will take a look at those places. Has anyone else ever been down there?

Yeh I spoke to a guy on a lift once an he said it was amazing. And really cheap although he said the chair lifts were a bit old and decrepit. 05-25-2009 01:11 AM

Ive been riding in Chile for the last 3 seasons, Mainly in El Colorado where I run slopeside accommodation. El Colorado links with La Parva, Valle Nevado and Farellones. The snow is great, the terrain is super fun, and theres been a really nice group of people to ride with.
