¿Por Qué No?
When Kyle Taylor and I met up with CASA Tours in Santiago last September, the weather was just perfect for outdoor shopping and sightseeing; sunny and 60-something degrees. It was my first trip to Chile, and the tales of high pressure and low moisture that I had been hearing stateside seemed to be true.
Kyle had been in the northern part of Chile for the past month; in Portillo, and said that the conditions were good, but the snowpack was as low as he’d ever seen it. With low expectations, we headed south to Nevados de Chillan. On the way, I thought “The experience itself will be worth it, regardless of snow conditions”, or something to that effect. Luckily, that stupid thought never crossed my mind again.
