Probably going to study and live in santiago for a year.
I would appreciate any advice about the living there now (after earthquake) as well as anything related to surfing or snowboarding.
I'm a regular surfer and would like to know how long it takes to get to the nearest break, the wetsuits I should bring,...any tips..
Thanks in advance!!

From Santiago de Chile to the nearest ski resort is only about 1.5 hours. I took a bus up to Farrelones, stayed in a hostel, and skied at El Colorado's and Valle de Navajo. Really uncrowded and gooid snow, and beautiful location. You can also hire gear at the ski resort if you don't have any. As for surf I have only been to Vina del Mar and Renaca, and seen close out beach breaks. Further south around Pichilemu you will find very good breaks, but it is a longer drive. Water in winter will be very cold, bring a 5/4 steamer and booties. In summer you will get away with a 3/2 steamer. Enjoy your time, one year is great !
