Don’t put your skis away just yet, there’s still plenty of skiing.
Although recent storms around the country have improved skiing conditions considerably, this season as a whole has been one of the toughest in decades. Thanks for nothing, La Nina.
We certainly won’t blame you for pulling out the bicycles, the golf clubs and the kayaks—heck, that’s what we did this weekend as temperatures in Boulder reached the upper 70s—but don’t write this year off as a wash just yet. There’s no correlation between winter weather patterns in the Northern Hemisphere and those below the Equator, which means this might be the year to pack your bags and head south.
Taste the top wines of Chile from July 28th- August 3rd.
Ski Portillo, an all-inclusive resort in Chile, will host the 9th annual Top Wines of Chile Week from July 31st through August 7th. All guests will be able to enjoy the nectar from seven different wineries from across the country. The Andes are the world's largest continental mountain range, and the ski season lasts from June-October, with the best skiing in July and August. The season in the southern hemisphere has been plentiful so far: Ski Portillo, often touted the Vail of South America, received six feet of snow just prior to opening.
