After 2 years of closed borders, there is finally some good news for international skiers, snowboarders and of course the Andes ski resorts

The 2022 ski season in South America is looking good as both Chile and Argentina are reopening to tourism.

When do Ski Resorts in South America Open
and Close for The Season?

Ski resorts in Chile and Argentina generally open for the ski season in mid to late June. When autumn brings earlier snowfall, some resorts open as early as the end of May.

On a good South American ski season, ski resorts do not close until late September to mid-October. On occasion the ski season in southern Chile can stretch well into November. In fact 2020, Antillanca ski resort near Osorno, Chile remained open on weekends until November 29th.

We suggest visiting from mid-July to mid September for the best resort skiing. Backcountry can be outstanding through October. Come November however, maybe it’s time to start planning to go ski in Japan or plan that backcountry Canada ski tour that has forever been on your to do list.
