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 •
Verbier is one of the world’s iconic ski resorts. With some of the most extensive piste and off-piste skiing in the Alps, it is popular with those who covet thrill and adventure. Attracting a sporty and wealthy clientele, Verbier has a healthy nightlife and appeals not only to the British and Scandinavians but also the Swiss and the local Geneva jet setters. With many of the rich and famous owning beautiful chalets here, Verbier is a high end resort with great infrastructure, a high class reputation and restaurants, après-ski and shops to match.
What about property in Verbier? With just 3200 permanent residents, much of the resort’s property stock is second homes. Close to the Savoleyres lift are the chalets of Sonalon with magnificent views over the resort. Similarly in Les Esserts you will find more chalets than apartments, which are concentrated closer to the Place Centrale and Médran. There has been a large amount of investment in the resort including a much-needed luxury hotel, the W, the sports centre, as well as a redevelopment of the railway station down at Le Châble. On the residential side, we note little new space and much redevelopment. Verbier has a loyal following and consequently demand for property here is always high.
