When you’re renting a home for a ski vacation, it’s typical to check out the size of the kitchen and the amenities on-site and to make sure there are enough beds to accommodate the whole group. But while the inside of the home is important, it can be the proximity to the slopes that puts it over the top. Check out these ski-in/ski-out vacation rentals right on Colorado’s mountains so you can maximize your time on the slopes:
The Charter at Beaver Creek
This European-style lodge sits right in the heart of Beaver Creek Village in Beaver Creek, Colorado. While the property may not be situated slopeside in the traditional sense, a single ski run passes right by the back door, continuing on to access the base of the Elkhorn Lift. Guests can pick up their skis from the valet, pop them in the backyard, and ski right down to the chair – it’s like having your own private ski run. When the snow gets thinner at season’s end, guests can grab the skier shuttle from the front door for easy access to the slopes.
A true ski-in/ski-out resort, BlueSky Breckenridge sits between Peak 8 and Peak 9 in Breckenridge, Colorado, adjacent to the Snowflake Lift and just three blocks off Main Street. Each condo has access to a ski valet too and a locker that’s just 50 feet from the ski lift. The proximity to the mountain isn’t the only draw either. The property’s condos have been professionally decorated with the highest quality furnishings, so you can cozy up after a day of skiing.
The Inn at Aspen
The Inn at Aspen in Aspen, Colorado is the only property located at the base of Buttermilk Ski Resort. Buttermilk Mountain is easy-going for beginners and families, with uncrowded beginner terrain and a learning center for the kiddos. This boutique property is a good one for families heading to the area with a ski school, ski rentals and a ticket office all right there. It’s also minutes from downtown Aspen when it’s time to shop, dine and explore.
Favorably located at the base of Assay Hill, near the Elk Camp Gondola and Base Village, The Enclave in Snowmass, Colorado provides easy ski-in/ski-out places near the slopes of both Assay and Fanny Hills. These spacious condos not only offer great ski access but fully-equipped kitchens, fireplaces and community amenities like a heated pool, hot tub and fitness center.
