Ski-In Ski-Out Chalets
Ski-in ski-out chalets offer the ultimate convenience on a ski holiday. Imagine stepping outside your door in the morning and immediately clipping into your ski boots to ski straight down the slope. No busy local buses, no tiring long walks in your ski boots with your skis sliding off your shoulders. Ski-in Ski-out chalets can maximise your time out on the slopes, and reduce hassle for families, so it’s not surprising they are some of the most popular properties on our website.
We feature lots of ski-in ski-out chalets in many resorts across the Alps, and they are one of our most popular requests. However, there is only so much room next to the slopes and properties can be described as ski-in ski-out if they are up to 75 metres from the edge of the piste. Each of our chalet pages features a Google maps location, so you can see its exact position in resort. You can even zoom in, or switch or satellite or street view for an even closer look!
Things to consider when searching for a ski-in ski-out chalet1. It's quite possible that the chalet might be 'ski-in' or 'ski-out' but not necessarily both. The location of the chalet should be carefully checked to make sure. If you're confused, you can always give us a call and ask!
2. Although the chalet may be correctly described as ski-in ski-out, it’s important to consider how easy this access actually is. Sometimes you may be required to ski over an area that is technically ‘off-piste’. These are usually only short distances and are therefore not an issue for most skiers. However, at the beginner or end of season when snow conditions are more likely to be icy or slushy, this might be difficult for nervous and beginner skiers or younger children.
3. A ski-in ski-out chalet is by nature situated at a higher altitude than the lifts and/or resort centre. Whilst this does usually mean you will enjoy beautiful elevated views across the resort and valleys, it could also mean a long walk back home after you’ve been in and around town. Most resorts benefit from a free bus service, but you should carefully consider whether a long walk uphill will be difficult for any members of your party.
Ski-in Ski-Out or Private Driver Service?
Booking a chalet without a ski-in ski-out location doesn’t necessarily mean you have to compromise on convenience. We have many chalets that benefit from a private driver service, which can be called whenever you like. They can pick you up after breakfast and get you down for first lifts, or collect you at the end of the day from an après bar on the opposite side of resort. It’s worth considering your group and your specific requirements for your ski holiday, because whilst a ski-in/ski-out chalet might initially seem like the only option, it might work better to rely on a driver service instead. And if you really can’t decide, you can always book a chalet with both!
