Hi, how are you.
Chile, is a very long country. it has borders with Argentina, Bolivia and Peru along 6171km.
Although it has no more than 300 km wide almost along all its territory, in those 300km there´s an amazing variation in the terrain elevation.
In fact, you have lots of seasides in the shore of Chile, like Valparaiso, Viña del mar ...
And in the east of Chile you have all the "Andes Cordillera". This is a very very high cordillera, with high peaks. You have snow there, and it does snow. (In the south of Chile it shall snow as well).
This "Andes cordillera" is shared with Argentina in the Chile borders.
I know very good places in the Argentinian side, which is very close to Chile.
One is called "Las Leñas" and it is one of the best places to go skiing and snowboarding there.
The highest mountain in this Chile-Argentinian coordillera is called the "Aconcagua" peak, and it is more than 6500m high. If you do a search, you'll probably find some Chilean places for winter sports. Otherwise look for las Leñas, that´s very near Chile. You can land there from Chile.
PS: In regards the precipitation. Chile is famous for having very dry places. Thsoe are mainly in the north. In fact, it has a very large desert, called the Atacama desert, where the last "Dakar Rally" took place.
