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 •
Kitzbühel has three separate ski areas (Hahnenkamm-Resterhöhe, Kitzbüheler Horn and Bichlalm). The data displayed refers to the largest one (Hahnenkamm-Resterhöhe). The total length of runs for all areas is 230 km
Like Megève and Gstaad, Kitzbühel is as much a lifestyle destination as ski resort, it has a proud heritage as one of the homes of Alpine skiing, and is a wonderful summer venue. The town itself dates back to medieval times and is beautifully preserved. The Hahnenkamm run is the famous annual downhill race, held since 1931, the piste is open to the public at other times. Elsewhere Kitzbühel has a decent range of mainly mellow skiing, and good snowmaking cover. A 15 minute journey takes you to the much larger SkiWelt complex. Plenty of large chalets here although visitor accommodation is mainly in hotels and guest houses; there is a wide variety of bars and restaurants.
What about property in Kitzbühel? Easy access given three airports within 1.5 hours drive, this is “chalet central” in Austria. Some beautiful old and more recent chalets sit within walking distance of the centre and further out of town, with many priced well into the €5m+ range. Property values in Kitzbühel have been resilient, rising gently over many years; a good location, and town centre apartments, command a premium. Foreign ownership regulations are significantly less restrictive than elsewhere in Austria.
