COME JOIN US ON A SUMMER SKI ADVENTURE HIGH IN THE ANDES!!!
Ski Portillo is situated in a beautiful valley high in the Andes Mountains. Portillo is a fun mountain for everyone with long groomed runs to powder filled chutes that run out across the Inca Lake. There are bowls, bumps and plenty of off-piste backcountry terrain for all you expert skiers. Heli-skiing is also available and reasonably priced.
Portillo is located approximately 100 miles Northeast of Santiago, along the Chilean/Argentinean border with Aconcagua Mountain, the highest mountain in the Western Hemisphere, as its backdrop. The resort is located high above some of the best wine producing vineyards in Chile, and the Hotel Portillo offers the most incredible view of the picturesque Laguna del Inca.
Hotel Portillo is one of the finest accommodations in all of South America. A five star establishment that serves up the finest Chilean cuisine, with four meals per day included in your stay. We will fly into Santiago and be transported by private vehicle the 102 miles to the resort (2.5 hours). Ski valet service will take care of your skis, boots and poles and have them ready for you when you are ready to hit the slopes. Experience a thrill on the way UP the slopes on one of Portillo’s Va et Vient (Slingshot) lifts.
As your trip leader, I had the opportunity to enjoy the Ski Portillo experience last August. The views are breathtaking, the terrain is amazing and the amenities offered by Ski Portillo are first class. The Ski Portillo staff members are incredibly welcoming and accommodating. Having been a ski instructor in Montana for many years at a resort with lots of expert terrain, I found plenty of skiing at Portillo that was very challenging. During my stay, I met several people who have been skiing at Portillo for many years and keep coming back for more. For those of you who may want to improve your skiing/riding skills, Portillo has an excellent Ski and Snowboard School with top-notch instructors from around the world. My daughter, who has been an instructor for several years in MT and CO, spends her summers instructing in Portillo and looks forward to returning every year.
