Two Chilean Ski Resorts Close Due to Lack of Snow

A series of ski resorts in South America have been struggling to keep the lifts running as unseasonably warm weather plagues the region. The renowned Chilean cat skiing operation Ski Arpa announced last weekend that they would be unable to open for the winter on account of poor snow conditions. Additionally, the Swiss Ski Team announced that they have cancelled their Chilean training camp, and will instead opt to train on the high altitude glaciers of Saas Fee and Zermatt.

Though many resorts are struggling in the face of suboptimal weather conditions, for those dedicated to the search of the endless winter, all hope is not lost. Ski Portillo has 57% of its lifts operating, though conditions have forced the resort to largely rely on snowmaking. Substantially farther south, in Bariloche, Argentina, snow conditions look far more promising. Cerro Catedral, currently has 30 of its 38 runs open.

Teton Gravity also misses the mark on reporting about the Southern Hemisphere! 400km south of Santiago the skiing is sensational! CORRALCO and the other southern resorts are all with exceptional conditions, most with over 5 meters of accumulated snowfall this season! CORRALCO will host USA, Germany, Spain, Andorra, Chile, China, CVA, Canada Paraolympic National Teams and others with exceptional winter conditions! Stay tuned to learn more about the teams that know where to find the best snow!

Panorama Resort to Offer Canada’s Cheapest Cat-Skiing

It might not be the biggest snowcat, but it sure does look snazzy. Panorama photo. Panorama Mountain Resort, located in southeastern British Columbia, nearly has more double-black trails than greens, blues, and blacks put together. As such, it should come as no surprise that they are also planning on operating an inbounds snowcat called "Monster X" to access far-flung, though fully avalanche-controlled zones in Taynton Bowl, located in the northern, AKA upper-left portion of the mountain.
