Ski-in / Ski-out Vacation Rentals in Breckenridge

Four O’Clock

There are a number of neighborhoods west of Main Street that offer slopeside access. The Four O’Clock neighborhood is one of them. It is named for the Four O’Clock run, one of the the longest runs in Breckenridge. It goes all the way into town so you are able to ride back to your property at 4:00 when the ski lifts close. The Snowflake Chairlift is easy to hop on when you are ready to head out in the morning. It is easy to get to all of the peaks from this convenient location. 

White Cloud

Nestled away just to the south of Peak 10 is the “White Cloud” area of warrior’s mark.  This neighborhood boasts some luxurious single-family homes, with stunning views.  Though this area is noted as ski-in/ski-out, the path to Peak 10 to upper Lehman is a bit more difficult to access for beginner skiers and can be inaccessible in the early season depending on snow conditions.  However, the serenity of the area, views, and luxurious choice of homes is unmatched in Breckenridge. 

Peak 7 and 8

Peaks 7 and 8 have quickly become the “village” of Breckenridge and offer several luxury lodges and single family homes. From these areas you can access lifts on Peak 7 and Peak 8 just steps outside the lodges. This area offers stunning views and is a little quieter than the neighborhoods closer in towards Main Street.

Peak 9

The base of Peak 9 is full of activity. It has condos that are situated close to the quicksilver and Beaver Run chairlift. It also has great options for aprés ski dining and entertainment. Many Breckenridge celebrations and events are centered at the base of Peak 9 due to the easy access to town both using the free town bus and your own feet.
