When people think of Chile, they think of wine. But like the country’s diverse vintages, Chile serves up a wide variety of skiing experiences, from tiny local areas to the international destination that is Portillo. With so much on tap, how do you choose the experience that’s right for you? We’ve created a non-inclusive A to V primer on the best that Chile has to offer. But don’t forget that there are other options that we’re not telling you about. Because, as every skier knows, sometimes discovering your own secret stash is the best part of making turns.
