■ Open to change
Ski resorts are facing the challenges and adapting, whether it be to climate change, demographic shifts, or the new patterns in ski consumption.
■ Future proofing
Residential product developed today is increasingly aligned to future occupier demand. Models such as leaseback will help drive the market in Switzerland.
■ Active buyers

■ Beyond ski
Top-tier resorts in Europe and North America have a cachet and non-ski offering that makes them more than simply winter sports destinations.
