ALPINE WEATHER LOG
The Alpine Weather Log is the home for Alps & Meters updates on our favorite ski destinations around the world. We'll report on who's open, who's closed, and where the snow is deepest, throughout the year. From #EndlessWinter in Valle Nevado, to late season turns at Jay Peak or Tuckerman, this is the place to find out where you should book your next trip to when the ski bug bites.

NEW ZEALAND / AUSTRALIA
A few storms have finally found their way to New Zealand over the past few weeks that has helped get things back on track for many of the main resorts. Coronet Peak, Treble Cone and The Remarkables all have some fresh snow on the ground and should all see 10 inches of new snow over the next week, with another round of storms passing through to drop more snow behind that.
Australian mountains should have fresh conditions, as places like Thredbo, Perisher, Charlotte Pass, Falls Creek and Mt. Hotham have all received close to a foot and half so far this week.
Portillo and Valle Nevado continue their competition to see who has the best snow in Chilé, and the skiers are the big winners here. Valle Nevado gained the slight upper hand this week, receiving a foot and a half to Portillo's foot, and should have slightly more snow all over the mountain. We're splitting hairs at this point though, the Chilean skiing is fantastic all over right now.La Parva has gotten a dusting as well this week.
Over in Argentina, head over to Bariloche for fresh snow, where Cerre Catedral has gotten a foot of new snow over the last 72 hours. Keep an eye on Las Leñas for a weekend snowfall around six inches or so.
