Portillo is Perfect for Families
Ski Portillo provides the ideal vacation setting for families to have fun, learn new skills, make lasting memories, and expand their horizons together. Family activities are centered on Portillo’s crowd-less ski slopes, the grand Hotel Portillo, the first-rate ski school, Kids Camp, professional childcare personnel, and plenty of activities, which allow parents to enjoy their ski vacation with the kids.
Families experience a hassle-free vacation at Ski Portillo and spend time enjoying one another in the heart of the spectacular Andes Mountains. The hotel’s Living Room encourages games, card playing, and socializing, instead of television watching (although there is a movie cinema which features family movies throughout the week). Parents need only go steps outside of the hotel to drop their children off at the kid-friendly ski school. Portillo offers slopes for all abilities — from never-evers to experts. With a maximum of 450 people at the resort, parents don’t need to worry about their children being on crowded slopes.
From kids’ menus and scavenger hunts to children’s ski lessons, races and prize ceremonies, Portillo offers many special services and activities to entertain young family members. Portillo keeps them busy and active with organized and supervised activities, as well as providing a cinema, game rooms, and a swimming pool. With so much to do for every member of the family, Portillo is a dream vacation for everyone.
