Yesterday, over 2,000 trucks were stranded because the Cristo Redentor tunnel between Argentina and Chile was blocked by snow. This tunnel, high in the mountains, is a key pass between the two nations for both commerce and tourism, since there are several resorts near by. No doubt the tourists were happier than the truckers about the arrival of snow. According to China View, the snow blockage is on the Chilean side and they say that they are doing every thing they can to get the snow out of the way and the drivers on the road again. In the mean time, Argentine drivers are being advised to use alternative routes that go through the eastern provinces of Neuquen and Jujuy.
