The Appeal of Mountain Living in a Ski Chalet

Buy Your Dream Winter Retreat


For those of us that love the exhilaration of the slopes and to ski or snowboard at every given opportunity, investing in ski chalets for sale is a dream come true. To be able to return to your ski chalet as often as you wish during the ski season is what most skiers and snowboarders strive for.

Ski chalets make for a lucrative investment; around 120 million skiers visit the Alps each year, making the impact of tourism in the Alps profitable if you decide to invest. If you then imagine how many of those 120 million prefer to stay in a private ski chalet for the duration of their holiday, the ski chalet owner receives stable returns, making his initial investment profitable. If you have the opportunity to buy, you should grab it with both hands.

Where Should you Buy?

The lure of pristine slopes and crisp mornings attracts skiers and snowboarders to some of the best-loved ski resorts. Often they find the ideal ski resort for themselves and return year after year. However, if you are buying for investment purposes, you need to look at the overall picture. Those thinking of making this investment often ask the same question, where is the best place to buy a ski property?

The ski season usually runs from early November to early April. However, it is possible to get late snowfall in high-altitude resorts, such as Tignes and Val Thorens. An extended season will allow you to let out your ski chalet longer, and you can still use it yourself at less busy times. Ideally, choose a ski resort that is open during the summer season also.

It goes without saying the rentable period of your ski chalet will bring you income during the summer also. Chamonix and Morzine are perfect if you want a year-round resort. Property prices in both resorts have increased in recent years; they offer cycling, hiking, climbing, and swimming, and some resorts offer much more. Dual seasonality appeals to holidaymakers and potential buyers alike.

Courchevel in the Three Valleys ski area is home to some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the Alps and some of the most expensive and desirable property in the world. In the Belleville Valley, in pretty St Martin de Belleville (part of the Three Valleys ski area), property prices are more affordable.

The location of your ski resort to the airport is also an essential factor when deciding where to purchase your ski chalet for sale. Obviously, the closer the airport to the ski resort, the better. France and Switzerland are the most popular countries to buy in, as they are both easy to reach either by flying or driving.

What type of ski chalet should you buy? It depends on your budget. You can buy a functional ski chalet or choose high end and invest in a luxurious ski chalet with a swimming pool, spa, sauna and cinema room. The choice is yours!
