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 •
Kirchberg is technically linked to KitzSki but also close SkiWelt, an area which encompasses eight villages in two valleys, ninety cable cars and seventy seven bars, restaurants, cafes and Alpine huts. Brixen is regarded as the centre of SkiWelt and dozens of runs of all difficulty, although best suited to intermediates, link up the villages of Söll, Scheffau, Ellmau, Going, Brixen itself, Westendorf, Hopfgarten, Itter and Kirchberg. It has the largest night skiing area in Austria, off piste is not a strong point, 80% of the slopes have snow-making. Skiwelt is unlike Ischgl or St. Anton for après-ski, but you can very easily find your favourite spots for a well-earned refreshment. Unsurprisingly, accommodation comes in a huge variety – from small guest houses to smart hotels, even an igloo.
What about property in Kirchberg? To us, the Austrian property market is excellent value in the context of the rest of Alps, resorts have made a huge effort to upgrade their infrastructure and offer comprehensive snow-making, this matters to property investors. The property market in Skiwelt is as varied as the ski area, there is usually a good selection of chalets on the market around Going, Ellmau and Scheffau, also in Söll and round the other side in Westendorf and down to Kirchberg. Kirchberg certainly benefits from its proximity to Kitzbühel.
