Hotel Ski Portillo Secrets – Chris Davenport

The Ski Portillo Resort in Chile is one of the most iconic hotels in the world. The large yellow building is like a cruise ship docked on the shores of Laguna del Inca at the base of the Andes. It is a place steeped in history and there are hundreds of stories of things that happen #onlyinPortillo . If those walls could talk, they would have a lot to say about some of South America’s luminary families and the best ski racers in the world.

Even if you’ve been to  Hotel Ski Portillo multiple times, you may not know about all of the secret tunnels, dumb waiters, and underground pathways that lead all around the hotel. Find one of the Portillo long-time employees and ask them to show you one of the secret spots in the hotel to see what kind of adventure you might find. Even better, go to the Camp of the Superstars and Chris Davenport himself will take you. Don’t get too excited about riding elevators if you are with Chris cause he has an ironclad rule of only climbing on foot!

This year’s camp is August 6 to 13. Find out more at
