It's Snowing Somewhere...

arpaGot the itch to go catskiing, but it's summer where you live?  Then get yourself to Chile where catskiing is just beginning at Ski Arpa.  Open from mid-June to mid-October with an annual snowfall of over 16 feet, it may not be quite like skiing in BC, but hey, it's summer.  It also sounds like an adventure of a place to get to, with a 108 km drive from Santiago, part of that on back roads.  We haven't been down there yet, but if you have, drop us an email and give us your take on it.  Host Anton "Toni" Sponar, who spends his summers in Chile while wintering in Aspen, and his son are out to show you a good time when you get tired of the beach in the north.
