New Quad at Portillo
This past December Portillo acquired a new quad chairlift to be used on the Plateau slope. The lift is a UNIFIX with a transportation capacity of 1400 people per hour. The new Plateau lift will help bring our guests a more comfortable ride and will be ready for the season opening.

This lift replaces a double chairlift. Portillo now has 2 quads among its network of 12 lifts. Valle Nevado still has the fastest lift in Chile: The Andes Express, a high-speed detachable quad.
