Portillo Secrets – The Ski School

Ski Portillo in Chile is one of the most amazing ski destinations in the world. Situated in the Southern Hemisphere, Portillo sits high in the Andes on the border of Argentina with Aconcagua rising stately above it. Many of the guests come from the US, Chile, Brazil, and Argentina, but the ski school is made up of top pros from around the alpine world including the US, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Argentina, and of course, from Chile.

The Ski School Director Robin Barnes shares Portillo secrets and gives us the inside scoop on why the ski school in Portillo is so special and why booking a lesson to ski with one of these top pros is the best thing you can do. This goes for skiers of all ability levels, from beginners to the most advanced. If you like skiing off piste, there are internationally certified guides to take you around and show you the terrain. If you like racing, you will find some of the fastest and best coaches who can get you on the podium in the weekly Sol de Portillo Ski Race.
