Megève Statistics - Introducing Skimiles®

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 •

Megève Information & Property Market Summary

Megève sits alongside Gstaad and Kitzbühel, these are hybrid lifestyle and ski destinations, but not of the hard core variety. All three have history, charm, and are beautifully preserved, with an upmarket feel and facilities. Megève competes head to head with Courchevel 1850 for Michelin star restaurants, but with a different clientele. The Four Seasons group is making a big bet on Megève with a slick chalet style hotel on Mont d’Arbois, the Aquatic Centre has received a €35m upgrade. The extensive ski area is best suited to intermediates, but has some fine off piste sections and challenging black runs. Most of the valley pistes have snow-making. Accommodations is in chalets, hotels and apartments, the Folie Douce is naturellement a top après destination.

What about property in Megève? Prices here are dramatically lower than Gstaad, and in the same bracket as Kitzbühel. Proximity to Geneva and as a favoured location for well-heeled French buyers underpin demand. Mont d’Arbois is the most exclusive section, properties in the village close to the lift also attract a premium, Demi-Quartier is a good compromise, Praz-sur-Arly is five kms down the road, and part of the Espace Diamant ski area. There is usually an ample selection of fine chalets and apartments for sale in Megève and nearby.
