The long-awaited solar eclipse will happen on July 2 with an estimated 92% blackout over Valle Nevado, centering just north of the resort in what is called Chile’s Central Valley and “Norte Chico” regions. Join us for this exciting and rare occurance! Valle Nevado’s distance from Santiago high in the Andes offers the best viewing platform with totally clear skies. Valle Nevado will prepare special activities related to the eclipse and provide guests with all the tools they need to fully view the eclipse as it occurs.

Skiing during an eclipse- priceless.
We can all do it in 2024 if it's a reasonable Winter. It occurs on April 8th, late afternoon, 2024, and runs from Texas diagonally up through New England :

The green lines are the extent of totality. Looks like Stowe and Sugarloaf are good bets to be at. Of course, you need to actually have sun.... not clouds. So only somewhat likely to see it anyway. It's still neat to watch it get dark outside. I was on a beach for the last one in 2017, and it was pretty cool.
