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.

• Snow Reliability considers the altitude, snowfall data and snowmaking coverage •
• Ski Area Value combines all these factors for one easy to recognise overall result •

Situated in the Haute-Savoie department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Les Gets is a dual-season resort at the west of the Portes du Soleil ski area. Popular with families it has a children-only ski area and attracts repeat visitors. Skiing is mainly beginner and intermediate, though there is some good off piste and snowboarding. More advanced skiing is easily accessed with fast lifts. There is a relaxed feel to the village, which explains its popularity with teenagers and young adults, many of whom enjoy the mountain biking for which the resort is famous. In summer numerous outside events and entertainment such as discos, music festivals, live bands, street performers and childrens’ activities attract many visitors.
