- Stunning steeps, immaculate groomers, perfect powder, exceptional scenery and a warm welcome make summer skiing in Portillo a holiday to remember
Ski Portillo, nestled in the Andes and just two hours from Santiago, sets the standard for classic ski experiences with more than 60 years of history and family-owned hospitality. The resort offers a unique all-inclusive ski holiday in a casually elegant hotel with ski-in-ski-out access. A maximum of 450 weekly guests eliminates long lift lines and crowded slopes, and makes guests feel like they are skiing at their own private Andean resort.
Portillo is famed for its easy-access off-piste terrain as well as its guided heli-skiing day trips for intermediates to experts. There is nothing quite like making tracks on your own Andean valley. Less experienced guests will find wide-open beginner and intermediate slopes and a highly trained ski school offering classes for every age and level. For those with small children, there is complimentary day care in the hotel nursery catering for four to seven year olds, allowing parents to enjoy some slope time on their own while the kids enjoy a fun-packed day. Hotel Portillo is part of ski history. On the walls – photos of skiing greats from Stein Eriksen to Olympic gold and silver medallist Tommy Moe.
Enjoy the après ski at the on-mountain restaurant Tio Bob’s with its stunning views or take advantage of one of the complimentary offerings such as the outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzis – perched idyllically over Lake Inca. You might also choose to indulge in a relaxing massage before getting ready for dinner. To whet your appetite before the three-course meal, try Chile’s national drink, Pisco Sour. After dinner, chill out in the bar listening to live music, before hitting the disco to party into the small hours. Portillo is dedicated to skiing as it should be. A fun group of compatible people enjoying the best of all adventure sports in beautiful, uncrowded conditions.
