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.
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.
