The start of the 2019 ski season in South America will be underway shortly thanks to April and May snowstorms dropping deep snow in the Andes of Chile and Argentina.

When do the ski resorts in South America open?

As a rule of thumb, ski resorts in Chile and Argentina generally open in mid to late June, and on a good year, as early as the end of May. 2017 saw some ski areas open even earlier. El Colorado opened May 19th. 

Below are the 2019 start dates. If not marked as “confirmed”, the opening date still depends on snow and weather conditions. Bookmark this page to check for updates as the season approaches.
