No, this isn’t an après-ski bar. It’s a mountainside WeWork pop-up

Redefining the concept of ‘working remote,’ one sweeping vista at a time

Heat waves may be sweeping across the Northern Hemisphere, but south of the equator, ski season is in full force. And at the La Parva ski resort in Chile—also known as the “Aspen of Latin America”—skiers who tire of the slopes can take a break to check email and maybe even catch a meeting at WeWork’s pop-up workspace. 

The space at La Parva (a 90-minute drive from Santiago) has everything you’d expect at a traditional WeWork: fast Wi-Fi; complimentary coffee, tea, fruit, water, and beer; meeting rooms; and comfortable workspaces. All that plus a spectacular view of the ski slopes, crystal white snow, and the beautiful Andes mountains. 

“At WeWork, we always look for spaces that encourage inspiration,” says Leandro Basaez, director of WeWork Chile. “We are a platform for people who want to change their working habits and style, and we want people to enjoy what they do and be happy.” 

It’s a lot easier to be happy tackling a few business to-do’s when WeWork redefines the concept of “working remote”: At La Parva you can fit in your ski runs and your work responsibilities, plus gain inspiration from creative activities and events especially created for this ski-town landscape, including ski and snowboard workshops, social impact education, sunrise yoga, wine and cheese tastings, fireside chats with s’mores, and live music. 

“Today, people value more the connections, the feeling of belonging, and the search for quality of life,” says Basaez. “Even during working hours.”
