Luxury Mountain Chalet in Argentina

The Ski House of the Day is the ski-in / ski-out Patagonia Ski Chalet in the Andes of Argentina.  The chalet is located 20-minutes from San Martin de Los Andes, and is perched on a mountain where you can ski directly down to Las Pendientes ski area, and from there connect through the woods to the Cerro Chapelco ski area.   With the ski season now open there, it's a good time to have a look inside this modern and very nice ski chalet.

The first thing I noticed about the chalet was the soaring 20 ft ceilings in the wide-open living room area:

All of the beautiful natural wood used in this house ("every wall of every room") makes for a nice, warm environment;  and the tall stone fireplace in the living room looks like a perfect spot to warm up after a day on the slopes.

The chalet has plenty of windows in its modern and spacious kitchen...

...and in its open dining area:

And here's the unbelievable view out of the living room windows:

With a spectacular view like that, no wonder there are so many windows!

The chalet has four bedrooms and four+ bathrooms.  I noticed all the beautifully tiled floors...and they're all toasty warm with radiant heat.  The few times I've stayed in a ski house with heated tile floors was a delightful treat for my tired and frozen feet.

The chalet also has a family room on the lower level.  There's an outdoor ski closet to keep the snowy skis from accumulating in here:

And for apres-ski entertainment, it also has a game room:

With its direct connections to skiing at two Argentinean ski areas...I hope the deck of the Patagonia Ski Chalet  looks like this -- right now!
