ONE massive, canary yellow hotel.

Over the past 60 years, Portillo has earned a reputation as an excellent destination for skiers and snowboarders from all over the world. The snow quality in Portillo is excellent and is often likened to that of the Rocky Mountains. Skiers of all skill-levels find what they are looking for on our mountain and come back year after year.

Portillo isn’t your average ski destination. There is no town, no shopping center and no Starbucks. There is ONE massive, canary yellow hotel, ONE beautiful ski mountain, up to 450 guests, and 450 energetic and smiling employees to ensure a care-free vacation.

With a better than a 1:1 staff to guest ratio, Portillo has mastered personalized service down to the most minor detail.
