First of all a Thank you for looking at my profile. I would say I'm a well traveled guy, i'm originally from Viña del mar a coastal city in Chile, then after some time living and working abroad , decided to settle in the chilean mountains , especifically in el Valle Las Trancas, close to Nevados de Chillán , in the bio bio region, to start working on my life project. This is the Perfect place to enjoy Snowboarding , which Ia one of my passions for more than 20 years. Also you can enjoy outdoors the rest of the year, as there is world class trekking and other outdoor activities around the area .. I consider myself very chill and open minded, i\'ve travelled a lot around the world ( more than 50 countries) and love simple and sustainable living. I get a lot of inspiration on the tiny house movement /living off the grid, and i 'm always trying to develop New projects with renewables energies and construction... The Lodge is located in El Valle Las Trancas, a beautiful place surounded by mountains ,very close to a ski area. I only have 2 cabins /rooms for now, and operate 100 % Off the grid with renewables energies .(Solar and thermal energies) breakfast and dinner it is optional for the guests. i'm Hotelier and know the business hands down.. I've worked in many Hotels , restaurants and cruise ships around the world, so i'd like to follow the standard that i'm expecting to offer to the guests. I 'm flexible with the lenght of the stay, and can be arrange in order of your travel needs or the season. ..I 'm looking for independents, enthutiastic people that have positive attitude. There is pure nature ,landscapes, and beautifull clear skies at nights. If you enjoy nature , outdoor Sports , running, fitness, Trekking, skiing , snowboarding , whatching the stars in one of the clearest skies un Chile ,this place will find you perfect.. I enjoy to workout almost everyday to keep myself strong for the snowboarding season,there is a home gym with the enough equipment to get fit ,i can give info and tips about training and nutrition . I'm really involved in my business, doing mostly everything around here, from reservations , shopping, cooking , housekeeping, maintenance and construction ,etc. so help is always welcome. i will show you how the job has to be done.. .
