It happens every summer. With a hot summer sun blazing overhead, the inevitable daydream to the cold, snowy days of winter washes over you like fresh face-shot. Summer turns are always a treat in the Northern Hemisphere, but there’s nothing like the feeling of stepping back into the flow of ski season with a trip to South America. Sure, you’ve thought about it before. But is it worth the time and money? How hard is it to make the migration south a reality? The truth is you can leave the US on a morning flight to Santiago, Chile one day, and be in the lift line at Valle Nevado the next morning. I’ve tested the system and it works. With a smooth customs check you can literally go from baggage to a shuttle, and be at the resort in under two hours.
