A myriad of ski areas, such as Corralco in Chile, have already registered snow totals of 4 meters (13 feet) — astonishing accumulations given that we’re only at the beginning of the snow campaign, and ones not witnessed for decades.

The historic conditions have also delivered 1.5 meters (almost 5 feet) of snow to the city of Mendoza, Las Leñas, Argentina.

With winter barely two weeks old, meteorologists at the Argentine National Weather Service have confirmed that this the highest volume of snow ever received in the city this early in the season.

All this persistent, heavy snowfall has put many regions on the highest avalanche alert level, including the Chubut, Mendoza, Neuquén and Río Negro mountain ranges, reports lugaresdenieve.com.

Accompanying the snow has been exceptionally cold temperatures, with the mercury touching a record-busting 23 degrees below zero in southern Argentina’s Río Negro.
