FAQ: Can I come on PropSki if I can’t ski or board?
Certainly, approximately 10% of PropSki attendees have either never skied or boarded or have only been once before. It’s a very cost effective way to learn as we offer beginner packages which provide cheaper rental and lessons. All PropSki beginners will be in the same lessons and its a great way to bond with industry peers
There are also plenty of other non-ski activities for you to participate in around the resort, for times when you need a ski break (rock climbing / spa facilities / gym / après ski etc.). Why not follow the lead of Akash Bhuwanee, Development Manager at South Central Management who can be found carving up the slopes on his ski-scooter!
“You can be a total beginner and still get so much out of the trip. There are skiing lessons available for beginners, which is a great way to meet other people on PropSki with a similar skiing ability to you. It’s fair to say that I’m still not a natural when it comes to skiing (!), but I keep coming back year after year – not only is it a great networking opportunity, but also extremely fun!”
“Beginners see real value in learning to ski on PropSki with many mentioning “it’s probably the most cost efficient way to learn how to ski!”
FAQ: Who usually goes to PropSki?
Last year we had nearly 300 attendees from over 90 companies.
There will be industry professionals aged between 20-65 yr. olds.
PropSki is attended by a wide range of property professionals with a shared passion for skiing. There is a range of delegates attending PropSki from 25-50+ year olds from Graduate level to Director level. There will be professional service providers (QS, PM, BS, Valuers), Investors, Funds, Architects, Agents, Developers and PropCo’s to name a few.
Our aim is to improve the trip year on year, promoting inclusivity by keeping the number of attendees within 300 to ensure that everyone has a chance to get to know each other. Since PropSki’s inception, attendance targets have been surpassed growing from 100 attendees in 2013 to 300 in 2016 and 2017 consecutively.
FAQ: How do you meet people if you’re skiing? Will I be skiing with people of similar ability?
We aim to put people in rooms of similar ability. If you are having lessons or during the guided tour day you will be put in groups relevant to your experience / skill level. In the morning over breakfast is also a great opportunity to find people who have similar aspirations of mountain coverage / pace etc.
On top of skiing, we have a range of activities, events & facilities throughout the trip which will provide you with plenty of opportunities to catch up with industry professionals you couldn’t catch on the slopes (Welcome drinks, Mountain meal, après ski, etc.)
New this year: Centrally located PropSki Hub – Breakfast & Lunch meeting point. Drop into the PropSki Hub at any part of the day to join new groups. For the times when…
You just want to meet new people
You are separated from your original ski group on the mountain
There are 300 attendees on the trip, so meeting people of similar ski ability is considerably easy…
FAQ: How do I deal with work whilst I’m away?
Whilst we encourage you to make the most of the trip, we understand that work still needs to get done.
There is WIFI in the hotel so you could work in your room or on the balcony. If you prefer a shared space away from the residence we will also be setting up the PropSki Hub co-working area, likely to be in Tignes Space lounge or in the Montana lounge. This central space is also a chance for you to meet other people from the industry & even brainstorm over current work projects together.
FAQ: What if I can’t take a whole week off work?
Whilst we want you to take full advantage of all the PropSki events & to maximise the trip, we understand sometimes taking a whole week off work is not feasible.
We offer a short week trip too from Saturday to Wednesday morning. You are obviously welcome to stay as long or as little as you like on the trip you will just need to make your own travel arrangements if you want to leave early. NUCO our travel agent can help with that to find you the most convenient and cost effective way back.
You will find more details on this in the ‘PropSki 2018’ section of the website.
FAQ: Can I organise my own accommodation?
We try to discourage organising your own accommodation as in the past this has created a disjointed trip and it is difficult to get the information you require.
We offer a range of accommodation with the standard accommodation being spacious and at French 4* with the opportunity for delegates to under occupy so they have their own room, upgrade to Hotel accommodation within the same complex or we have chalet packages.
If none of these fit your requirements we can at the last resort offer event only wristbands at £200 per person to those adamant on organising their own accommodation.
FAQ: How does the apartment allocation / accommodation work?
The standard accommodation is in the Residence block of Montanna and are provided in chalet style apartments in sizes of 4, 6 & 8.
There will be no one using the lounge beds but you will be sharing a room unless you pay to under occupy.
You can either get together in pairs or as the room sizes and after booking closes you will be invited to reserve your room with peers / colleagues. If you are on your own or if you would prefer to mix with new people then you have an opportunity to stipulate what type of apartment you wish to be in. i.e. single sex.
There are upgrade packages available which include Hotel rooms or for larger groups chalet options.
