Ski vacations are awesome, especially when you do not have to drag your ski’s or snowboard in and out of cars, up stairs and around town. That is what makes ski-in-ski-out hotels so convenient and desirable. Here are the best ski-in-ski-out hotels at some of our favorite ski areas in the American West.

Four Seasons

TETON VILLAGE, WY

Teton Village is the capital for skiing in Wyoming and the Four Seasons is the crown jewel of the Village.  Located within a stones throw of two lifts, the gondola and the tram, the skiing access from the bar patio doesn't get much better.  Speaking of the bar patio, it is the number one place to grab an aprés drink and enjoy the spectacular people watching. Don’t forget to take a day to enjoy a Wyoming wildlife safari in neighboring Teton National Park.

BEAVER CREEK, CO

Beaver Creek is an enclave of luxury skiing and high quality accommodations, but the Ritz at Bachelor Gulch is so exclusive it has its own enclave within the enclave.  Enjoy skiing up to the fire pits that are stocked with s’more fixings after a long day on the hill or grab a couch and a cocktail lounge inside the spacious and elegant Great Room.  With three restaurants, two bars and a lounge on site there will be no need to leave for the duration of your stay, besides to get some fresh turns!

The classic European styled Stein Eriksen Lodge sits front and center at the base village of the skier only Deer Valley Resort.  Known as the first luxury ski-in-ski-out hotel in the country, the Stein Eriksen does not disappoint when it comes to world class service and amenities.  After a long day on the hill, stop by Utah’s only Forbes Five Star rated Spa and enjoy a massage. You deserve it!

The Hotel Madeline

TELLURIDE, CO

The Madeline, recently acquired by Auberge Resorts, represents the finest ski-in-ski-out accommodations in the rugged San Juan Mountains of Colorado.  Enjoy front door access to the shops and restaurants of Mountain Village and a short walk to the gondola that connects to the adorable historic mining town itself.  Be sure to stop by Alred’s for a cocktail on your way to town at the midway point of the gondola for some of the best views in Colorado.

The Caledonian

PARK CITY, UT

Ski-in-ski-out and located on historic main street?  Is that possible? Only in Park City. While Caledonian is not technically a hotel, it is a residence club that offers short term accommodations for non-owners and thank god for that.  With condos that have private hot tubs located on decks overlooking the mountain, front door access to the Town Lift and walking distance to all that downtown has to offer, this Park City property is hard to beat.
