August 2011 has brought a series of significant snow storms, and more powder is on the way to finish up the month. After last week's one meter snowfall in the mountains near Santiago, many resorts reported their most visited weekend ever. The record business is well-deserved, after a lackluster 2010 season snowfall, and a slow start in June and early-July of this year. The snow was just that good.
