You’re streaming down the side of a mountain, a tiny figure picked out against a huge expanse of pure white. The deep, powder snow flashing beneath your skis.

There are two vital components to a glorious skiing holiday. The enigmatic, snow-covered mountain that invites you to hurl yourself down its slopes on a limitless surge of pure adrenalin. And the Aprés – your chance to ease the aching muscles, relive the day and indulge in some excellent cuisine and warming wine.

Choose Ski Portillo for your luxury, tailor-made skiing holiday to Chile, and both criteria will be met and exceeded. Snow-wise the figures speak for themselves: 1235 acres of skiing terrain, 14 lifts taking you to 35 runs, off-piste challenges, heli-skiing and any number of bowls and shoots to collect exactly the right sort of snow. Complemented by a resort that has 60 years of experience in welcoming visitors to stylish and sophisticated luxury.
