Alpine Property Search Publishes Index That Ranks French Alpine Ski Resorts For Potential Buyers

Specialist mountain property agents, Alpine Property Search, has published an index that ranks 21 French Alpine ski resorts against a number of factors that can help buyers make an informed choice.

The index ranks resorts based on a points system for five key indicators – snow record and snow making facilities, size of ski area, relative affordability (compared with Knight Frank’s average of 30 resorts in France, Switzerland and Austria), year-round suitability and accessibility. The index assigns a score out of 20.

It concentrates on five regions: The 3 Valleys (Courchevel, Meribel, La Tania, Les Menuires, Val Thorens, St Martin de Belleville), L’Espace Killy (Val d’Isère, Tignes), Chamonix and Evasion Mont Blanc (Combloux, Megeve, St Gervais, Les Contamines), Les Portes du Soleil (Les Gets, Morzine, Avoriaz, Chatel) and Le Grand Massif (Samoens, Flaine).

David Bhagat, founder of Alpine Property Search, said:

The intrepid Alpine Property Search team embarked on an exhaustive trip to review the state of 21 French resorts – well, someone had to do it. And, to help with the deluge of information a buyer needs to digest when deciding on a dream home in the Alps, we have inaugurated the Alpine Property Search Index as a starting point with which one can compare resorts.

The resort with the highest score was Chamonix with 18/20. Runners up were St Martin de Belleville, St Gervais, Les Gets and Morzine all with 17/20.
