  • Description


    My name is Joaquin, I have 3 daughters, (Victoria 21, Sofia 19, Francisca 17) and my girlfriend Taru, we leave in Santiago and also in the mountain.

    I own companies related to my passion - skiing: Ski Guides Service and a Heliski company call. The house is located at the main access road to the ski areas such as Valle Nevado, La Parva and El Colorado. Our season operates from mid June to midd September and I am looking ideally for a couple multilingual workawayers as I have 1 room available at this time.

    This will be a reopening as a workaway host, so we are slowly with the workaway enrollment process, but we are trying our best and there will be always lots to do in the garden and with general house maintenance, housekeeping, cooking, painting, and of course help at Powder South as well if skills match.... We keep few rental ski touring gear for rentals.

    I always prefer couples who could stay from one (1) ++ to three (3) months ++ with us, so they get familiar with the house and my family. We offer great accommodation and benefits to go skiing the mountain during winter or hiking in the mountains the rest of the year...

    We also have two big friendly dogs, a Riesenschnauzer (dog) Titan.... and recently Uli a San Bernard join us. We eat very healthy, mostly vegetarian.

    The general and special duties at home are the daily keep you doing, but a very important factor in this experience, is the relation and interaction with my family, everybody need to be confortable, my daughters, myself and an appropriate family dynamic. We are not a place to sleep and eat for work, we value very much a rich interaction and we had most of the time achieve the goal, we love and support 100% WorkAway and this organization...
