Ski-in/Ski out Access and Doorstep Skiing

What does ski-in/ski-out mean?

Ski-in/ski-out access means that you can click into your skis at a property and ski from the boot room straight onto the slopes, whether that's onto a green run, blue run, red run etc. if you have any questions about the ability level needed to ski from specific accommodation please get in touch with us. Please note that ski-in/ski-out access is snow permitting.

What does doorstep skiing mean? 

Peak Retreats has lots of apartments with doorstep skiing, which means that there's a slope within 50m of your accommodation. Skiing is pretty much on your doorstep (subject to snow conditions and ability). It is worth checking what type of slopes are by the accommodation e.g. whether these are nursery slopes or red slopes as obviously it depends on the level of skiers you have in your party as to whether you can ski down the slope by your accommodation. 

You will also find properties that are conveniently located right next to a gondola that will take you to the start of the ski area. One of the benefits of doorstep skiing is that there's no need to take a shuttle bus. This is ideal for groups with small children, as long as the slopes nearby are suited to their level.
