Portillo, The Washington Post March 2016
Want to ski on your summer vacation? Head to the Chilean Andes.
In a few days, I was bound for Portillo, a reputed little jewel of a resort favored by die-hard skiers the world over. Some go there, I’d been told, simply because they can’t wait for the next season in the Northern Hemisphere to start. Some just want a different type of summer vacation. And others — who are paid to ski — go there to train.
Portillo had been on my bucket list of resorts for a long time. Last summer, I was finally able to cross it off. Don’t know whether it’s for everybody, but for someone like me, who’d love to be on a pair of skis no matter what time of year and who has a weakness for special places, Portillo was probably inevitable.
