Welcome to the Andes – Ottawa style.
La Nina promises cold weather and ample snow for Winterlude 1999, but the international component of the festival will feature a virtually snow-free country.
Chile runs half the length of the South American Pacific coast, from Peru to the lower tip of the continent. It has a thin profile thanks to the Andes Mountains, which hug almost the entire length of the country’s right flank, but you might have to climb the peaks to catch a snowflake on your tongue.
