Ski In, Ski Out Accommodation You'll Love

It will come as no surprise that ski in, ski out accommodation is one of our most highly requested short break features. We've put together a guide on where to stay for the ultimate skiing convenience.

There's nothing more frustrating than a long walk to the ski lifts in the morning with a pair of skis over your shoulders, poles clutched in your gloved hands, and your clunky ski boots weighing you down. The ease of ski in, ski out digs can't be beaten, and our customers seem to agree with us on that one. Convenience is king, so here we are: a list of all our flexiski ski in, ski out properties - all suitable for short breaks and ski weekends. You don't get much more labour-saving than that.

Where to find ski in, ski out accommodation?

You'll probably already have noticed by now that a large concentration of the hotels we've featured in this round up are located in France. French resorts are often sat higher up on the slopes and therefore have better access to fresh snow.

Resorts such as Grindelwald in Switzerland (sat at 1,000m above sea level) simply don't offer ski in, ski out accommodation due to it being slightly less snow sure at village level.

Val Thorens in France is where you'll find the highest concentration of ski in, ski out properties as the highest resort in Europe, located at 2,300m altitude. 

If you fancy a stay at any of these hotels or if simply want to find out more, give our Ski Specialists a call on 01962 587777. They can run through the best options for you and your dates.

At flexiski, short breaks and ski weekends are our speciality, but accommodation can also be booked for longer periods if required. Whether you're looking for accommodation only or a full ATOL protected package holiday, our Ski Specialists will be able to help.
