About the Resort

Located approximately two hours from Santiago, Chile’s capital, and accessible via direct flights from numerous North American cities, Portillo is the perfect South American ski destination. Combining breathtaking views of the Laguna del Inca in the shadows of the Andes highest peaks, world-class skiing and snowboarding, and excellent service with a 1:1 guest to employee ratio, Portillo delivers an unsurpassed experience, rich in cultural, athletic and community spirit.
A luxury all-inclusive resort, a Portillo ski week includes the following: seven nights lodging, four meals per day (breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner), lift tickets, and access to everything the resort has to offer. Often compared to a “cruise ship high in the Andes,” the resort accommodates only 450 guests per week, effectively avoiding overcrowding and lift lines while affording guests the feeling they are skiing at their own private Andean resort.

Ski Portillo features 14 lifts, and the terrain caters to skiers of all abilities. For beginners and first-time skiers or snowboarders, Portillo’s ski and snowboard school features the world’s finest instructors — nearly 100 percent have earned their country’s highest certification and instruct year-round. While less-experienced guests will find wide-open and uncrowded beginner slopes, Portillo is famed for its steeps and is surrounded by easily accessible backcountry terrain.

Accommodations at Ski Portillo are myriad, with different advantages for couples, families with children and groups of friends. The famous yellow-hued Hotel Portillo offers the ultimate in South American comfort and convenience. Guests can choose from valley-view or lake-view double units, or family apartments accommodating up to six guests. The Octagon Lodge offers rooms with two bunk beds (four guests) and a private bathroom, and the no-frills Inca Lodge offers smaller rooms consisting of two sets of bunk beds with communal bathrooms.

Portillo’s all-inclusive complimentary offerings also include use of the pool and hot tubs overlooking the Laguna del Inca, the fitness center, gymnasium, aerobics and yoga classes, cinema, game room, children’s activities, the daycare center (complimentary for children four to seven years old), the disco bar, ski and boot check and timed race courses.
