As expected, no new snowfall was recorded over our featured Chilean resorts over the past few days, instead with mild weather resulting in pleasant skiing days under only high cloud. The downside of these temperatures is an inability to run artificial snowmaking, something which has been especially important on the lower slopes of many resorts. Saying that, Chapelco (10/60cm) was undoubtedly offering some great skiing across the resort even at lower altitudes among the trees.
Similar conditions could be found in Chile, with an absence of fresh snow but abundant good weather. Mild temperatures have given the mountains an almost spring like feel despite the time of year, with beautiful clear skies and relatively soft snow. This may change given the forecast, with snow expected Friday and Saturday, while more long term outlooks predict a large storm from mid-next week.
