Powder Lodge

Powder Lodge

Powder Lodge Farellones is a timber-framed building overlooking the ski field of La Parva and looking down the valley towards Santiago. Extensive use of timber inside the lodge along with tasteful furnishings and central heating provides for a rustic and cozy atmosphere.

This lodge is ideal for singles, couples, families as well as large groups.  The lodge is rather social and a great place to meet like-minded people.

Where is Powder Lodge? Powder Lodge is located in Farellones (about 10 mins by road from the ski resorts of El Colorado and La Parva, or just a few minutes walk to the inter-connecting Farellones lifts).

Rooms The lodge offers 8 rooms configured to accommodate 1 - 3 guests in each.

Bedding is all twin beds however the 2 beds can easily be pushed together to make up a double for couples. The beds are very comfortable and fitted with quality bedding.

Every room has its own private bathroom attached plus they offer a free daily shuttle service to/from La Parva and El Colorado ski areas.

Dining/Bars The lodge doesn't have a formal restaurant and is not licensed to sell alcohol, however it does come with its own chef and you are free to bring your own alcohol.

Powder Lodge offers an option to self cater however the normal package includes breakfast, apres ski appetizers and dinner (plus free wine is provided with dinner!).

The dinner menu is changed weekly so if you are staying a while you will get a good variety of quality food. A special menu can also be created for anyone with special dietary requirements.

The dining area has plenty of seating around a large timber table as well as a breakfast bar with bar stools.

Other Facilities & ServicesThe lodge has a couple of nice cozy living areas, one with a glass door wood heater for that extra special coziness on those cold winter nights. It has lots of nice comfy couches to curl up on after a day of skiing.

One of the highlights of the lodge is the outdoor wood fired hot tub. This is a great place to socialize and relax those weary muscles at the same time, and one of the best places to watch the spectacular Santiago sunsets.

The lodge also has satellite TV, board games & wifi internet is available to guests.

If you were to choose the self-cater option, the kitchen has all of the accessories to assist you in being a master chef!

Powder Lodge also provides the option of a guiding service plus they offer a free shuttle service to/from La Parva & El Colorado ski areas.

Whilst not a "formal service", one of the huge benefits of staying at the Powder Lodge is that the fabulous host Christian is a wealth of information.

The Powderhounds have stayed at Powder Lodge and highly recommend it.

A Great Place to Stay for Skiing La Parva

Powder Lodge was a great place. Accommodating room and board. Wonderful Andes atmosphere with priceless views. Travel to and from the mountain was less than an hour. The Lodge was small but comfortable.

The best place to stay in the Tres Valles

If you are looking for something other than a big hotel where you can feel extra special, not just a room number, this is the place for you.

We had read the glowing reviews about Powder Lodge Farellones and we had high expectations. Well we weren't disappointed! From the time you arrive, Christian and his staff make you feel like you are part of the family.

The lodge itself is rustic and cosy and has a really nice warm feeling to it. There are multiple living areas so guests can spread out and have their own space or integrate with other guests as they like.

The rooms vary in standard and size however they are all warm and have very comfortable beds with premium bedding. One of the added benefits of staying in Farellones as opposed to Valle Nevado is that it is a bit lower in altitude meaning it is far easier to sleep at night.

The outdoor wood fired hot tub is a real treat. Patricio the in-house chef even prepares apres snacks and brings it out to the hot tub so you can relax and watch the sun set without interruption.

On the food front, these guys really cook up a storm. They have a good variety of food and change it every night during a week. They can also cater for most special dietary requirements. You won't go hungry at Powder Lodge and I think most people's taste buds will be well satisfied.

Powder Lodge staff also run a free shuttle for guests around Farellones and to La Parva and El Colorado each day so you don't need your own vehicle.

The only problem with Powder Lodge is it only has 8 rooms and it gets booked up early; so if this is what you are looking for you will need to book in early (or you might have to rely on luck). So go ahead and book this amazing place before you miss out.

Simply The Best; Chuck Out The Rest!

John Forbes15/09/2012
We had stayed at various places in the Tres Valley and whist we have always enjoyed the skiing we always came away a little disappointed about our lodging experience. Wherever we stayed it seemed to cost a small fortune for not great value.

Well look no further; if you like a boutique lodge style environment where you can meet new friends around the dinner table in the evening and feel like you are part of an extended family, then Powder Lodge is the place for you.

Right from the time you walk in to this place you are greeted with welcome arms and the hospitality goes beyond what you would find at a 5-star hotel.

The food is a total highlight and the added bonus of toasting with a nice wine with new friends is tremendous.

The rooms are on the small side but very cozy and the ensuite bathrooms are adequate.

One of my favorite things to do each day was come home to the outdoor hot tub and watch the sun go down with a glass of wine in hand.

I highly recommend this place.
