Snowboarding in Portillo, Chile

National Parks Hiking and Trekking
You could debate on whether or not Portillo should be on this list. After all it is a skier’s mountain. Always has been and always will be. Some snowboarders hate it, but others love it. If you are a beginner or intermediate this is a great resort due to the wide open and well-maintained slopes. You can quickly jump off the trail for some fun powder turns before getting back to the groomers.
Experts with good mountain sense and a hunger for adventure will also love Portillo. Why? For the hiking access to some seriously steep terrain and cliff drops. Just be prepared for some exposed traverses.
The gray area is with advanced intermediates to advanced snowboarders. You may find you quickly become limited on terrain you can ride. Most of the expert terrain requires steep sling-shot style lifts and traverses over rocky cliff bands. Unless you are experienced in the mountains, this terrain should be avoided. So, what do you do? Make a day trip of it and enjoy the best of the resort. Guided trips visiting multiple resorts, include day trips to Portillo. A great option to experience Portillo, but not feel like you spent too much time there.
