Portillo Information

Ski Portillo has set the standard for classic ski experiences with more than 60 years of history and family-owned hospitality. This tradition continues today, offering skiers a rare taste of a world long forgotten, rich in culture, community spirit and awe-inspiring beauty. Located approximately two hours from Santiago and accessible via direct flights from numerous North American cities, Ski Portillo is the dream South American ski destination. Its incomparable setting – on the shores of the Lake of the Incas and surrounded by 19,000-foot Andean peaks – delivers an unsurpassed experience with world-class skiing and snowboarding and excellent service thanks to a one-to-one guest-to-employee ratio. The resort accommodates a maximum of 450 guests a week, eliminating crowds and lift lines, and affording guests the sensation of skiing at their own, private Andean resort. Ski Portillo’s 14 lifts and over 35 runs (1235 acres of skiable terrain) include the famed Va et Vient lifts found only at Ski Portillo, access terrain catering to skiers of all abilities. Ski Portillo’s ski and snowboard school features the world’s most qualified instructors; nearly 100 percent instruct year-round, teaching at the finest resorts in the Northern Hemisphere when they are not in Portillo. While less-experienced guests will find wide-open and uncrowded beginner slopes, Portillo is famed for its steeps, and the area is surrounded by easily accessed backcountry terrain. Ski Portillo’s instructors also provide expert off-piste guiding for experienced skiers.
