It’s pretty difficult to find a better option from June to October than Chile’s Portillo. The small resort has killer steeps, wide-open alpine terrain and views of Aconcagua, and the glowing glacial Laguna del Inca. Oh and powder. Super dry, super regular stashes of fresh powder.Image Credit: Ski Portillo
As the resort famously only accommodates 450 people at a time, lift lines are virtually unheard of, although you might want to book early. Portillo is used as a base by many countries’ ski and snowboard teams, and is fairly legendary in the snowboarding world. After one run, you’ll know why.
