A quick overview of unique ski and snowboard trips available in South America in 2015.

When summer rolls around in the Northern Hemisphere, skiing and snowboarding options become rather limited. Whilst most will hang up their boots and head to the beach (or MTB trail) whilst waiting for colder times, the truly dedicated head south. Ever thought about an endless winter?

UPDATE: Overview of 2016 South America ski and snowboard trips is now available (click to view).

South America and the Andes mountains are truly the king of Southern Hemisphere winters.  The mountains are huge, and wild; twisted turrets and spires pierce the skies like the battlements of some vast natural citedal, gateway to some of the most awe-inspiring big mountain terrain on Earth. South America really does have it all, from incredible tree skiing around Bariloche to the almost mythical steeps and couloirs of Portillo and Las Lenas.

For a detailed look into the different South American ski/snowboard areas and travel options, check our South America Ski Guide: Where to Go and How to Get There.

Forget scratching about and dodging meltwater pools in European glacier resorts – if you need your summer snow fix, wax up your big mountain planks and pick your favourite from the trips below. You won’t regret it!
