Chile/Argentina

Hey,
Looking for info from anyone who's been down to South America during the summer months up to late september. Conditions, Referals on where to stay, How much it ended up costing, and any other info would be great. Looking to get away this summer but want to make sure it's worth it.
Thanks

Check these guys out: Ski and Snowboard Chile and Argentina | CASA Tours | www.casatours.com
Otherwise a flight to Santiago and a bus ride up to the three ski fields would be an easy snowboarding vacation. I'd suggest doing the whole tour with someone who speaks Spanish. The bus ride over the Andes toward Bariloche is epic.

Ive been riding Chile for the last 3 years. The terrain is great the people are lovely. I have been running a slopeside accommodation in El Colorado resort. This area connects with Valle Nevado, La Parva and Farellones. Big powder bowls, chutes, cliffs, groomers, terrain parks muy bueno! If you are interested please feel free to contact me with questions..

let it snow

Hi Karl,
I've never been snowboarding in Chile but would like to. How much are accomodations at your establishment for 5 days? (typical mid season)

Thanks!

Henry
