When is the BEST month to go snowboarding in Chile or Argentina???

I'm looking to take a trip to South America but I want the best possible chance at conditions being mint. I just want plush powder. Is July, Aug or September best to go? I'm just gonna do a 4-5 day trip. I just want to go straight to the Mountain from the airport, stay as close as possible maybe even ON the mountain and then come home. Not looking to party or go to any local spots. Its gonna be me and my girl and MAYBE a few others but most likely not.

I just want to know the best mountain and the best shot at conditions. I like park stuff but its not needed, I just want a high mountain, fast lifts and most important of all, a SAFE PLACE!!!

My Suggestion

As you want to go to South America the best season would be between August and September as this is the time when these regions receive the most snowfall as they lie in the Southern Hemisphere and is a good time for snowboarding.

Since you want to get in, ride and get out quick and stay at a safe place your best bet is Valle Nevado. They have 3 hotels options to choose from, includes lift tickets and 3 meals. You can get a private transfer to pick you up at the airport when you arrive, take you straight up to the resort (1.5-2 hours) and be riding the same day you arrive.
It's mellow and a fun place for 4-5 days. They sell mini weeks if that is what you are looking at.
If you book 7 nights before April 15th, they are doing 15% off!
