What are you doing this summer?
Ski the legendary Chilean Andes from June to September and take advantage of exclusive wine and ski tours, food and wine festivals, and discounted packages that showcase the striking contrasts for which Chile is famous. With a strong dollar vs. the peso, low-cost airfare from the U.S. to Santiago, and early snowfall hitting the country’s Central Valley last week—forecasting bountiful snow for the upcoming season—there has never been a better time for North American skiers and snowboarders to head south and experience the “endless winter.”
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:
