Portillo is a ski resort located 160 kilometers (99 mi) from Santiago, Chile, near the city of Los Andes. Its base sits at 2880 meters above sea level and its highest point reaches 3332 meters above sea level. Ski Portillo has 23 ski trails and 12 lifts.
Plans to build the ski area were drawn up in the 1930s. Construction began in 1942 and the ski area was opened in 1949. Several of the ski lifts on the west side of the valley were destroyed by avalanches in 1965 and were rebuilt in time for Portillo to host the alpine skiing World Championships in 1966. Portillo has since become one of the principal destinations for ski racers to train during the Northern Hemisphere summer and hosts the ski teams of Austria, Italy, and the USA.
The ski season typically runs from mid-June to early-October depending on the length and depth of snowfall regionally.
