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 •
Known as one of the leading Swiss resorts, Grimentz Valais emerges at the end of one branch of the Anniviers valley and ski area after a spectacular drive. A 15th Century Swiss mountain village with a pedestrianised and cobbled main street lined with traditional wooden chalets with red geraniums hanging from nearly every window in the summer, Grimentz oozes charm all year round. The winter season is snow sure due to its high altitude and a variety of runs suit all abilities. Powder hounds enjoy its famous off-piste skiing on the uncrowded North and East facing back country terrain. Close to ski resorts and filled with a variety of shops and a small number of hotels, restaurants and bars, the après ski is understated, but if you are looking for a quiet and charming village with epic skiing and numerous summer activities, Grimentz is a great choice.
What about property in Grimentz? The valley has been a popular draw for British visitors for centuries and now attracts those from all over the world, particularly in summer. With around 500 local residents, a high percentage of properties are second homes which means once the handful of new 2 or 3 bedroom chalet and apartment developments are finished, no further new building will be allowed for any property type. Real estate agents buyers will have to choose from available resale property or seek Swiss properties for sale in neighboring locations.
