Go from your room to the chairlift at these convenient ski-in, ski-out (and nearly slopeside) hotels in Vail, Lionshead & West Vail.

These hotels, resorts and vacation rentals are situated conveniently to the ski area, giving skiers and snowboarders the opportunity to walk from their rooms to a chairlift. Many Vail hotels — even if they’re not technically ski-in, ski-out — also offer ski-valet services that not only store your equipment after a day of powder play; they’ll have everything waiting for you, ready and tuned, the very next morning.

Explore these ski-in, ski-out (or nearly) Vail hotel options offering luxury and ease:
