    My boyfriend and I are trying to decide where to take a trip this coming year. We both love to ski but also love the luxury and warmth of the beach especially because is it winter here in New York. We have heard that in Chile you can ski in one region of Chile and go to the beach in another. Is this true? We would be looking to go either January or the first week in February. Any help you can offer would be great. Thanks- Victoria

    Victoria, keep in mind that the winter in the Northern Hemisphere is Summer in the Southern, While you may find some areas to ski, you wont find the ski resorts open at that time. August is the best time to head south. Hit the beach in NY and head to Chile the next day. You can ski in the morning and be at the beach in the afternoon. Chile is very narrow. It may take 3 hours to go across the width of the country. To go from end to end, though, plan on 3 or 4 days of hard driving.
