Sixty years for the great Chilean ski resort of Portillo.  If you need get hip on Portillo, check out our Ski Channel Primer.  Yes, winter is ramping up here in the northern hemisphere, and skiing south of the equator is about as topical as a burrito after a six-course meal, but, file it in the back of the filing-cabinet-brain, when warm temps kill the snow, Portillo is where you want to go.  It is South American skiing of epic proportions.

Ski Portillo celebrated 60 years of awesomeness with what else?  A military parade!  Henry Purcell, who has owned Ski Portillo for decades, was obviously moved by the procession.  Congrats to Mr. Purcell (pictured below) and to Ski Portillo for 60 years!  Although it’s still another five years before those social security checks come rolling in…
