Farellones Chile, the small ski village high above Santiago was founded in the 1930’s. The rustic mountain town is home to numerous ski lodges, refugios, and high end bed and breakfast hotels and private ski homes. With several restaurants and popular bars and nightclubs, Farellones is a great base for your visit to El Colorado, La Parva and Valle Nevado. PowderQuest stays at a great owner run lodge here in the village for our guided adventures.
Farellones just under 8,000 feet above sea level, hosts a small family oriented ski resort of the same name linking to the larger El Colorado. Late May and early June a series of winter storms covered the town with snow.
