Find Your nidski - How To Guide To Finding Your Dream Ski Property On nidski.com
nidski.com is a ski property listings and information website featuring ski property for sale around the world, in the French, Swiss and Italian Alps as well as Canada, the USA and Spain. But how do we help alpine agents promote their ski properties, and how can our website visitors get the most out of www.nidski.com ?
First of all, let’s look at “Search”, the most important functionality of a property website.
There are 2 different ways to find and view property on www.nidski.com:
Standard search: You put in a ski resort name - the list of locations self-populates - preferred currency, price range and bedrooms and then hit Search. You can then refine the results by Property Type and Feature – important if a hot tub or fireplace is a must!
Browse by map: See your property search results on a map. A particularly useful tool if you want to search for property in all ski resorts in a ski area, such as the Portes du Soleil or the Grand Massif (or both!). From the For Sale page, start your search for an alpine chalet or apartment with any resort name or ski area, and other criteria you want to specify. Your results show on the map so you have a good snapshot of the type of properties available, and where. If you prefer you can switch the list of results to a classic List or Gallery View.
But once you've set your search, what can you do to find the hidden ski property gems? Here are some tips:
1. Multiple location search
Property search is often limited by location. On nidski.com users can enter multiple locations – for example, Chamonix, Verbier AND Morzine – in one search to get results for all locations. A simple, but effective way to compare prices between different ski resorts, if you haven’t made up your mind about where you would like to buy.
2. Let nidski do the work
Browsing property websites takes time, so the good news is that once you have defined your searches on nidski.com you can save them into your own MYNIDSKI account. You can also set up property alerts to be the first to know of new ski property for sale and save a shortlist of properties which you like the look of.
3. Properties you may also like…
If you’re struggling to find a ski property to suit you, nidski.com will also suggest other ski properties you might like – a useful way to find a property you may have missed before.
4. Contact an agent (or several)
No matter how your search starts, it normally ends with an estate agent. nidski.com offers different ways to get in touch with alpine property agents.
First, find them in our online alpine estate agent directory. Type in a name or a location and you’ll find their contact details as well as the ski resorts they cover.
Secondly, send them an enquiry through our simple enquiry form - there’s one at the bottom of each property listing. It’s also possible to send a “Multiple Enquiry” to several agents, by ticking “Select” for the different ski properties you want more information about.
How does nidski help alpine property agents?

We don’t just let your ski properties sit there for the world to find, we actively promote them through our social media channels, as well as other online and offline PR and advertising.
Often, agents feel they won’t have the time to manage an account on a listings or portal website. Uploading property to nidski.com is easy too; achieved in a matter of minutes by XML feed. nidski.com is set up to receive feeds from the main XML feed providers in the different alpine countries displayed on the site.
