At the foot of the majestic Dolomites, the historic Hotel Portillo was built in Selva Val Gardena in 1965, when the village was made of just a few houses and the population consisted mostly of farmers and wood carvers. Carlo Senoner was born in Selva, at the feet of Sassolungo – the highest and most striking mountain of the Gardena Valley. He grew up in a very big family where the parents where woodcarvers and later also hotel managers. As one of the youngest children, he was given the possibility to become an athlete, skiing up and down of those fields that later became the slopes of the famous Sella Ronda, nowadays loved by skiers and snowboarders. The height of his skiing career – by way of the Italian leagues and Olympics – happened in 1966, when he classified 1st in special slalom at the World Ski Championships in Portillo, Chile, beating the legendary French athletes Guy Perillat and Louis Jauffret. A few years later the family hotel was renamed from Pensione Chalet into Hotel Chalet Portillo to honour this great victory.
The compound has been renovated multiple times through the years, and the latest comprehensive upgrading ended in November 2013, when the new name was also unveiled: 1966' Portillo Dolomites .
