PORTILLO, Chile

Portillo is one of the most unique ski resorts in the world. Why? Because Portillo offers extraordinary terrain, breathtaking surroundings, and an abundance of amenities and indoor activities – for just 450 guests. As other ski resorts become bigger and more impersonal, Portillo continues to handcraft its vacations. For more than 60 years, the owners of Portillo have strived to keep the hotel and ski center small and intimate, yet with all the modern conveniences guests have come to expect. The season opens mid June and closes the first week of October.

As an open invitation for North Americans to chase the “endless winter” and enjoy what is expected to be one of Valle Nevado’s and Portillo’s best seasons in the past decades, the resorts have launched plenty incredible deals:

Spring Skiing in the Mountains

My use of epic is generally mountain related, although I still probably say it a lot more than I should. Epic was the day I made it to Vail right before the pass closed because of the weather. This same storm dropped a foot of powder that I got to ski for a couple of hours before the pass opened and it got tracked out. It was epic in Steamboat after they had gone a couple of weeks with very little new snow, only to have three feet come down in one night. I’ve actually lost count of how many epic days I had when living in Utah; I got to the point where I required at least six inches of fresh snow to motivate me out of bed in the morning.
