08122007: Don’t Sweat…Ski!

Everyone thinks of escaping winter with a Caribbean or Mexico getaway…but what about when you’re ready to escape summer? Don’t forget that the southern hemisphere is enjoying winter right now so you could be hitting the slopes next week instead of sweating!

Last fall we had the opportunity to visit Portillo (located near the Chilean border with Argentina); it’s a beautiful place. Chile is incredibly easy for travelers, even those without Spanish skills. Named one of the Top 10 ski resorts in the world by the Travel Channel, Ski magazine and Warren Miller Productions, Portillo offers unlimited lift-accessed skiing and amazing backcountry skiing accessible via hikes and helicopter.
