More non-skiers are visiting the slopes this ski season, and they’ve got opinions on where to stay. This year, nearly one in three non-skiers said they join their skiing and snowboarding friends and family on ski vacations, up from one in five last year. Eighty-two percent prefer to stay in a vacation rental when tagging along. These are among the findings of a recent study* of more than 9,000 skiers, snowboarders and non-skiers conducted by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, the world’s largest professional manager of vacation rental properties and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands.
The study shows each party tends to agree when it comes to lodging for a ski vacation, with 84 percent of both skiers and snowboarders also preferring vacation rentals. This preference has strengthened from last year when 77 percent of skiers and snowboarders reported a preference for vacation rentals.
“Vacation rentals can provide a lot of great benefits for all types of travelers,” said Mary Lynn Clark, president, Wyndham Vacation Rentals North America. “While a non-skier might appreciate being able to relax by the fire or read a book on the couch, skiers can benefit from fueling up after runs in the kitchen or having extra space for gear.”
Other findings show the reasons vacation rentals reign in ski country.
From the convenience of a kitchen to value, space and privacy, see where each type of traveler’s priorities lay when booking a vacation rental property for a ski vacation:
