*Let us know if you would like to extend your stay at the Portillo Ski Center or travel on a different date. This can easily be arranged by our sales team!.
The trip should start on a Tuesday at Santiago Airport and end on day 7 at the same place. We recommend that you arrive on a morning flight and depart on an afternoon or evening flight.
We use comfortable minivans that normally seat 2 to 10 people.
Central Chile has a mild Mediterranean climate, winters (June to September) are more humid, with cold mornings and typical maximum daily temperatures of 13 degrees Celsius (55 degrees Fahrenheit), and minimums of a few degrees above freezing.
You need to bring your personal belongings and appropriate ski wear and gear. Ski wear and gear can also be rented as necessary.
Excursions in Santiago and Valparaiso will only be altered in case of heavy rain.
With regards to Portillo, please bear in mind that the road to the resort (an international road connecting Santiago to Mendoza, Argentina) is maintained by the ONEMI, a governmental organization responsible for road-clearing following a snowstorm or other event. Portillo Ski Resort is not responsible for the road’s conditions. When road closure prevents guests from arriving or departing, travelers must be aware that:
Passengers who cannot make their way to Portillo due to road closure will be responsible for alternative accommodation and other costs in Santiago or elsewhere. Paid nights which aren’t spent at Portillo Ski Resort will be credited to their account.
Guests may choose to transfer this credit to their extra services account (ski classes, bar tabs, etc), use it towards a future reservation during the same year’s season or manage refunds directly with their travel agency or tour operator.
Passengers already at Portillo who cannot make their way down due to road closure must stay another night at the hotel. The first night’s accommodation will be charged at the normal rate. From the second night onwards, a 50% discount on the normal rate will apply.
