Why buy a ski property in Austria

Why buy a ski property in Austria?

People buy a ski property in Austria as a lifestyle investment. A mountainside chalet or apartment is an exciting addition to your property portfolio, enabling year-round Alpine adventures for the family.

When you buy a ski property in Austria you can enjoy your mountain home all year-round. Winters in Austria are cold and snowy,  but also enjoy lovely warm summers. Ski resorts like Kitzbuhel are equally popular in the summer months, boasting beautiful lakes for swimming and sailing, and many other activities. Here you can enjoy biking, hiking, golf, rock-climbing, and much more. As such, almost all Austrian ski resorts are authentic villages, home to locals year-round, and never close. This is not the case across the Alps – in some countries, resorts are ‘purpose-built’ and close for the spring, summer, and autumn when they are not fit for use. Dual-seasonality is desirable and why many of our clients buy a ski property in Austria.

Rental income and investment opportunity
Austrian ski properties make excellent rental investments that earn you an income all year round. Most ski properties in Austria have dedicated rental management teams in place who will maximise your rental income and provide a hassle-free experience for you. They will advertise your property, schedule your bookings, meet your guests, and handle all laundering and cleaning of your property. New-build properties in particular have even been designed with rental income in mind, offering amazing spa facilities and services for you and your guests to enjoy. Rental income and investment potential is an exciting reason to buy a ski property in Austria.

Modern infrastructure
Austrian ski resorts have the most modern lift infrastructure in the industry, having invested over 7 billion euros since 2000. Austrian lift companies continue to invest into their facilities and some resorts even boast luxurious equipment, such as heated chairlifts and gondolas, Wi-Fi on the slopes, and advanced snowmaking facilities. Resorts are also connecting-up between themselves, to create larger areas to explore on skis. Austria now accounts for a highest number of very large ski resorts. This includes resorts like Saalbach-Hinterglemm, and also The Arlberg. Modern infrastructure and investment is important and a good reason to buy a ski property in Austria.

As well as investment in ski infrastructure, Austrian ski resorts invest into soft-ski and summer facilities that are becoming ever more popular. Almost 25% of annual visitors to the Alps are non-skiers and Austrian ski resorts offer something for everybody. Soft-ski options include activities like winter walking, ice-skating, tobogganing, sleigh rides, snowshoeing, and much more. No skiing, no problem!
