As you are planning your ski vacation, you may notice that ski-in/ski-out vacation condos in Breckenridge are quite a bit more expensive than other properties in or around town. While, you might be tempted to save a little, there are some great reasons to go ahead and splurge on the convenience of ski-in/ski/out.

Ideal for Families

If you have had the whole family along on your ski vacation, you know about the endless amounts of stuff that needs to be hauled to the ski hill and home again at the end of the day. It can be hard for younger kids to manage their skis and gear and you are left trying to balance everything and get everyone on the mountain. If you are staying at a ski-in/ski-out condo in Breckenriddge, you simply put on your skis and get on the lift. The snacks, sunscreen, and other essentials can stay at home and you can pop in and grab it when you need it. There is also no need to carry skis for long distances. Your teens can stay out longer when the rest of the crew is ready to come home. You can stop in for lunch or breaks and still have plenty of time to get back on the slopes. When you are moving around a group of people, a ski-in/ski-out vacation rental will give you the most time together to do the thing you came to do.

More Time for Other Activities

Often, the hardest part of vacations are travel time between activities. Everyone is cold and tired and just wants to be home. Being able to ski straight back to your property cuts out the time needed on other transportation getting home. There is no lag between getting off the ski hill and taking off your boots. Simply ski to your place and start relaxing and enjoying the evening. You will have plenty of time to grab a drink or go out for a nice meal.

Ambience 

Ski-in/ski-out lodging has great views and atmosphere! You get to enjoy all of the ambience you imagine when dreaming about a ski vacation. Some of the most beautiful views around Breckenridge are found on the mountain.

Distance to Town

At many ski resorts, ski-in/ski-out property can mean remote and hard to get to. Because Main Street in downtown Breckenridge is so close to the resort, it is easy to get into town. The gondola and an extensive free bus and shuttle system make getting off and on the mountain simple. So, while you will get mountain access convenience, you will also have easy access to all you favorite aprés ski activities.

A Caution

Make sure you know what type of terrain you will have access to at your ski-in/ski-out property. For example the Warrior’s Mark neighborhood offers easy access to a lift, but that lift only services advanced terrain. You wouldn’t want to be a beginner staying in this location and expect to ski-in/ski-out. Know all the details about your location so that you can find a place that meets your hopes and needs.
