If you want a secluded, sentimental ski experience, then Portillo, Chile’s oldest ski resort, is for you. The iconic yellow hotel is nestled in the high peaks of the Andes. Without a surrounding town and only a two-hour drive from Santiago, Portillo is private, yet accessible. With lifts spanning from 10,860 to 2,548 ft, Portillo offers a variety of ski experiences, all of which pair well with an evening swim in the outdoor heated pool followed by dinner at the family-friendly resort. And as far as records go, Portillo has a history of breaking them. French skier Jean-Claude Killy earned his first gold medal in 1966 and American speed skier Steve McKinney became the first to exceed 200 kph. Whether you’re interested in toasty cocoa and the hot tub or setting the next world record, Portillo is the place to be.
