Cerro Catedral

July 27th

The ski resort overlooking the lake town. Conditions are only ok, and the terrain hardly compares to Chillan.

July 25th

Bariloche Argentina on Lago Nahuel Huapi. A proper ski town with year round activities. Probably the biggest in South America, though not known to be best in skiing.

Thermas de Chillan

July 20-22nd

I finally made it to the slopes. It's the biggest area in southern Chile, though there has not been new snow for a week. Packed and groomed, and off trail has soft and solid spots. The most accessible off-piste is a long rolling group of gullies and natural pipes, with occasional short steeps.
