So Bola and I went to Chile as well. Yes, we had a really great time!

One question arrised right after we arrived and drove to Portillo, Fin, have you been in Chile before? And possible not behaved yourself very well?

Might this be the result? I mean, now I know why you didn’t want to join us.

Are there more Portillo pics, somewhere?

Of the many times Ive gone to Chile to snowboard (okay, maybe 5), I have not hit Portillo. Have gone to Valle/El Colorado every time and Termas once. Would like a trip report on Portillo.....:)

I don't have any riding pics at all, just some scenic pics I can post.

We only hit Portillo for 3 days and made our way down to Termas for an additional 7 days. Portillo was fun, very family oriented resort. Great food!

We also got lucky. Storm left 2 feet the day before we arrived, so we still had some freshies. Last day some good carving as well...

The next moring we left quite early and arrived at the pass up to Portillo in time

to realize that the pass is actually closed! The told us it's due to snow!

5 hours later we mad it up. In the meantime...

What you can't see in this picture are the Pisco glasses in front of us.

In regards to Portillo, I would for sure go back, but also like to explore other resorts. I think it's best to split up the trip.

I found myself two fisting it once or twice at dinner, with both Pisco and red wine...... :o

I do agree that it is fun to break up a trip with more than one resort, however, I never really did get the urge to go else where, while we were at Valle Nevado. Probably, since the conditions were so fantastic! Glad your trip appears as great and fun as ours was. Cant wait until the next one!

Thanks for sharing the pics!
