South America's best-known ski resort is set far above the timberline in a desolate moonlike landscape of rock and snow. Portillo’s very low humidity combined with a 9,350 foot base altitude assure a crisp climate producing legendary dry powder. With a Portillo ski vacation package you will discover a resort world renown for superb ski conditions and celebrated beauty of the Laguna de Inca Lake surrounded by some of the highest mountains in the hemisphere.
From the simplest beginner’s area to awe-inspiring powder chutes, Portillo has a wide variety of slopes. 80% of the terrain is groomed daily and, because there are so few guests, experts can enjoy Portillo’s famous powder days without worrying about everything getting tracked out by mid afternoon. Top skiers can take on Portillo's ultimate thrill: climbing into the wilds above the hotel and, on a 30-degree face, take the legendary nine-mile run from the statue of the Christ of the Andes. Ski trails spread in all directions and the lifts start right outside the hotel door, so just put on your skis and go!
