1. I'm going to be at one resort most of the time, because I want to buy a seasons pass. Which resort should I go to? I don't want to spend more then $1000 on a pass, and I want to go to the resort that gets the most snow. Is this table a legitamate representation of how much snow each resort gets? http://www.powderhounds.com/site/DefaultSite/filesystem/documents/South_America_ski_resort_statistics.pdf
2. I'm thinking about buying a car (hopefully a van actually) in Santiago, Chile so that I can get around to some other resorts, due some touring, and live in it. Is this a good idea? Should I buy the car somewhere else? If you buy a car in Argentina you can't take it out of the country.
3. How much money should I bring? I'll be down there in May, and resorts don't open till June, what else should I do with my time?
4. What are the chances of finding a family that will let me live with them if I pay them some amount of money each month?
Any other advice? God I'm so excited.
