Usually, Chile's Valle Nevado gets its first snow sometime in June. But it's already dusting snow in the southern hemisphere—four inches fell overnight at Valle Nevado. The ski resort opens for the season on June 11. "Given that snow typically begins to fall around early June, this is a very auspicious sign that an outstanding season awaits Valle Nevado," their press release states.

Here are the stats on Valle Nevado, a ski resort in Chile that offers some of the largest ski-able terrain in South America: 260 days of sunshine a year, almost 2,000 acres of terrain (over 50 percent of which is advanced or expert off-piste), the only high-speed quad chairlift in Chile, and the only heli-ski outfitter in the country (the heli pad is located right at the ski resort).

The ski resort is offering several early-bird promotional deals if you book a trip there before May 16. Reserve now and you'll get all-inclusive package rates include lodging, breakfast and dinner, lift tickets, après-ski, kid's activities and day care, and nightly entertainment, starting from $875 in the budget Hotel Tres Puntas, $995 in the Hotel Puerta del Sol, or $1,220 per person in the more luxurious Hotel Valle Nevado.
