Portillo is South America's oldest and most well-known ski resort. Located on the edge of Inca Lake, Portillo is 100 percent above treeline and revered by advanced/expert skiers for its steep, off-piste terrain, good hiking and powder that can last for days. With just one hotel and no town, the ambiance lends itself to a lot of skier camaraderie, and the focus is as much on skiing and snowboarding as life off the slopes.
