Market Comment

Sugarbush is low on inventory due to a busy summer and fall, and realtors are expecting inventory to decrease even more through the winter. Lower-priced units are selling the quickest, of course.

Market Comment Foreign investors are taking advantage of undervalued Canadian currency. A strong local economy, new resort ownership (now part of Resorts of the Canadian Rockies), extensive ski area expansion and development, and a spectacular setting with year-round recreation opportunities make Kimberley Alpine Resort a booming market in British Columbia real estate.

Market Comment The mountain itself has undergone many improvements for this season, including a new gondola. This strengthens a consistent market of buyers looking to ski Jackson a week or so per year and rent during the season.
