Bored of your own mountain view? Then try someone else’s!

Brand new website offers property owners in ski destinations the chance to explore other ski resorts at a minimal cost. Snow Swappers is a home swapping club exclusively for property owners in ski resorts around the world. The service is designed for those who love their home resort but also want the freedom to explore new ski areas without any accommodation costs. By arranging a home swap, you can experience a new resort and likewise, your swap partner will enjoy a holiday in your home resort.

Snow Swappers brings together like minded ski home owners worldwide

Members of Snow Swappers will have access to other members who are also home owners in ski resorts. Members then communicate with each other and agree to swap their properties. The member you swap with could be based anywhere in the world: as long as they want to visit where your own property is, then a swap can be arranged.

Who is this service aimed at?

• Home owners that live in a ski resort and want to holiday in another ski resort
• Second home owners that desperately want to try another resort but always feel they should use their own place to save money
• Any ski resort home owner that wants to save money!

In the current economic climate, everyone with the exception of the super-rich will be looking to minimise their costs and be smart about their finances. Second home owners that have an apartment or chalet in a ski resort are no exception. The chance to travel to a new destination for a minimal cost can only present a fantastic opportunity for the perfect budget holiday. For a family that live in a resort all year round, the chance for free accommodation in summer or winter somewhere completely new, will provide an opportunity that is hard to resist.

Snow Swappers charge an annual membership fee of £39 (Great Britain Pound) which allows access to every property featured on the website. For a limited time, membership will be offered free of charge for the first year. There are no other charges applicable after the membership fee and arrangements between property owners can be easily organised through the websites built in functions.
