In a daze of sunshine, it’s easy to forget about the winter fun happening in the Southern Hemisphere. Here in North America, we’re spending long days biking, hiking, and lying on the beach (my favorite summer activity).

But in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s like Christmas in July! It’s snowing, it’s dumping, and in some cases it’s avalanching. Yet, the sun is still shining on these beautiful mountains.

Check out these awesome July snowfalls that resorts in Chile, Argentina, and New Zealand are getting right now. These videos will make you want to hop straight on a flight to the Southern Hemisphere. If you’re already there, what are you waiting for? Hit the slopes!
