Chamonix Statistics - Introducing Skimiles®

Why do we favour one ski resort over another? What makes us try a new place, and go back? It is a complicated question - is it the culture, the ambience, or are there other more tangible factors?

Does the skiing suit me? Are the pistes spacious or crowded, is it big enough, does it have lots of groomed runs, are the lifts efficient and comfortable, can I be sure of snow?

Alpine Property intelligence is proud to join with Montenius Consult to present a new way to answer these questions – which is factual, unbiased and unopinionated.

“A VALUABLE NEW TOOL FOR HOLIDAY DECISIONS AND PROPERTY INVESTORS”

• Skimiles® measures the size of every ski resort by 10 specific factors •
• Ski Area Comfort is determined by the efficiency of the lifts, the comfort of the lifts and how much ‘elbow room’ there is on the piste •
• Snow Reliability
considers the altitude, snowfall data and snowmaking coverage •
• Ski Area Value combines all these factors for one easy to recognise overall result •

Chamonix Information & Property Market Summary

A legend in the ski and snowboard world, Chamonix is synonymous with steep, long and challenging runs, fantastic off-piste powder and mountain scenery that takes your breath away. Not just an Alpine thrill seeker’s guilty pleasure, it also caters for all abilities with pisted trails for all standards. A lively year-round town with a mixture of locals and international visitors, this historical ski and climbing town is friendly, cosmopolitan and stylish with a huge array of hotels, shops, restaurants and bars ranging from the exotic to the traditional.

What about property in Chamonix? With a permanent population of 14,000 Chamonix’s property market is diverse. The valley has long been popular with British and Scandinavian buyers and the perennially strong Swiss Franc draws Geneva-based buyers, from apartments in the centre to luxury chalets close to the golf course in Les Praz. Massive multi-year investment in infrastructure from the Compagnie du Mont Blanc including the Montenvers site and Plan Praz are factors behind two years of consecutive 5% p.a increase in property prices.
