Could you spend next winter in your very own ski home? If you’re thinking of taking the plunge in 2022, here are just a few reasons why owning a property in the mountains could be one of the best decisions you ever make.
With the average person spending anywhere between £500-£2000 on their annual ski trips, it may be worth considering a long-term plan which could end up saving (and even making) you money.
It could be said that, due to coronavirus, private rentals are more popular than ever. So, if you don’t fancy spending your spring or summer in your ski home, then why not rent it out? More than ever, holidaymakers are probably looking for a place where they can escape the crowds with wide-open spaces and plenty of outdoor activities – the mountains would tick all these boxes and more!
Dual season ski resorts offer a wealth of activities all year round, from golf and mountain biking to climbing and white-water rafting. Many resorts have buzzing towns and villages that will, of course, be available for you to enjoy at any time of year. You may even discover bars, restaurants, or markets that you didn’t have time to visit during ski season.
A ski home is the perfect excuse to organise that holiday with family and friends that you’ve always talked about. Perhaps choose a resort that caters to all ages and abilities, as well as with a great après ski scene to ensure that there’s something for everyone. Make it a regular occurrence and you’ll build up a lifetime of precious memories for you, your family and friends that will be looked back on with fondness for years to come.
A holiday without the hassle
The sheer convenience of owning your own ski home is a great reason to purchase one. If you’ve chosen a home that caters to your needs and is in a great location, the logistics of a ski holiday suddenly become a breeze. As well as this, dragging your ski gear to the airport and paying extra for luggage is a thing of the past. You can store your belongings in your property, so they are ready and waiting when you arrive.
The perfect escape
The mountains are the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of our daily routines, take life at a slower pace and get plenty of rest and exercise. There is infinite space to escape the crowds and busier parts of the resort can be easily avoided, especially if you have your own ski home. Also, it goes without saying that, whether you’re a complete beginning or a seasoned pro, a ski holiday is a lot of fun - so what better way to unwind and enjoy yourself?
