Buying a ski property can be a treacherous world when you’re on a budget. The best known resorts come with the price tag to match their reputation, and not all the resorts within your budget will be your cup of tea. We all know searching for a ski property can feel a little like stepping into the unknown, and it can be difficult to tell what’s worth investing in.
So, to help make the search a little easier we compiled a list of our favourite ski properties that don’t cost an arm and a leg.
With prices running under £1,000,000, this ski in, ski out development is perfect for easy access to the huge ski area of the Portes du Soleil. All the apartments have three or more bedrooms, the views are spectacular and it’s freehold too; no need to rent it out.
The Trois Vallees isn’t exactly known for having ski in, ski out property on the market for anything less than a fortune, but Les Menuires has long been overlooked in favour of Meribel, Courchevel and Val Thorens.
