Portillo in Chile is a growing resort owned and run by Americans. This means that it has all the mod-cons you'd expect including fast Internet and a cyber cafe.
Some may find the number of runs a little limited but they're well planned and well maintained. However, the efficient lift system and superb open-bowl powder means there's something for everyone.
If Chile is somewhere you're looking to go skiing this summer then Portillo is recommended.
