This is part one of a 3 part photo update from my ski trip to Chile. La Nieve (snow), is the feature of this round. Throughout one month of skiing, sometimes the snow was plentiful, other times scarce and downright shitty. Valle Nevado was having one of its worst years, with only 50% of normal snowpack. Compare that to places in southern Chile like Termas De Chillan which had heaps of snow, as apparent in the photograph below. It was excellent to finally have the opportunity to travel to South America and see first hand the potential of the mighty Andes mountains.
