Portillo, Chile To Open Slopes Early

Courtesy Portillo

Santiago, Chile – June 14th is Portillo?s new opening day due to the massive quantities of snow that the recent storms in the region have dropped on the resort. This week will be just like the week of June 21st, with low season rates and a 1 child skis free promotion, but will allow guests to hit the slopes even sooner than expected in 2008. Mini weeks will also be available during this week (price is calculated by dividing the weekly rate by 7 and multiplying by the number of nights), but the kids ski free does not apply to stays under 7 nights.
