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 •
Champéry is one of Switzerland’s oldest tourist destinations and is a charming village with traditional slate roofs and hand carved balconies. The village is filled with small shops, restaurants and bars. With a large cable car and a new 6-seater gondola now in operation it is possible to enjoy this quiet Swiss mountain village whilst indulging in the vast Portes du Soleil network on its doorstep. Skiing here suits all abilities with easy access to the French resorts of Avoriaz and Châtel. The Champéry Palladium sports centre hosts the Skating School of Switzerland as well as indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, basketball and volleyball. The surrounding mountains provide extensive hiking and biking options.
How about property in Champéry? There is a handful of new build property developments in the village and a relatively limited amount of resale property compared with many other Swiss resorts. While there is no ski in-ski out property, the resort’s modern infrastructure, extensive winter and summer activities and proximity to Geneva mean prices have fallen less here over the last five years than in other Swiss resorts.
