Located about 100 miles from Santiago, Chile's capital, Portillo is one of Chile's best known resorts. Spectacular views and a vast ski area linked to the resorts of La Parva and El Colorado is what to expect here. On the border with Argentina, Portillo is not the biggest resort, yet the best known outside the country. Its lifts are called The Slingshots, as some of the expert runs here are so steep and prone to avalanches, that they are serviced by the bizarre but exhilarating va et vient lifts only.

With the longest run being 1,5 miles, the ski resort features 1,235 acres of skiable terrain, 14 lifts and 35 runs. 15 % of its terrain is for beginners, 30% for intermediates, another 30% for advanced skiers and a whopping 25% is suited to experts. In 2018, the ski resort announced the addition of a new run called El Gaucho, which is 1,017ft long and is located at Bajada del Tren. With an average of 24,7 feet per season, Portillo receives plenty of snow; as the weather is not a 100% predictable, the ski resort invested in snowmaking equipment
