10 Airbnb Ski Rentals to Book Now for a Winter Getaway
Tuning out loud neighbors and negotiating which of your kids has to sleep on the pullout couch should not be included in your list of vacation activities. Skip the crowded hotel this year and, instead, opt for one of these spacious winter Airbnb rentals right next to your favorite ski lift. With more than enough room for everyone, you won’t even feel guilty calling dibs on the master suite fit for a queen.
The Cozy A-Frame Hideaway
You might not have thought of visiting New Mexico for a ski vacation, but for those in on the secret, Taos just can’t be beat. The Taos Ski Valley Resort boasts one of the highest-rated ski schools in the country, making it the perfect place for your little ones to start learning the tricks of the trade. Plus, it’s just a half a mile drive from the resort base, meaning everyone can pop back home for lunch and a much needed warm-up sesh by the fire.

The Snow White Villa
Located just one block from Main St. and the Town Lift in Park City, Utah, this luxury home is brand new and begging for a visit from you and your fam. After a day on the slopes, the kids will love snuggling up to watch a movie in the projector screen theater while the adults can sit back with a glass of wine on the quiet balconies. Plus, how chic is the all white decor? It might just inspire you to redecorate your own place.
From $737, sleeps 8
The House with 180-Degree Mountain Views
Just 15 minutes from town, this stunning Aspen, Colorado, home is conveniently located for all the skiing and culture (hey there, Aspen Art Museum) you could want to consume. It's replete with heated pool, stone spa, fire pit, a backyard hiking trail and endless Rocky Mountain views. We have a feeling you’ll never want to leave.
From $1,400, sleeps 8
The BarnWood Condo
All the benefits of staying just two minutes from the Telluride, Colorado, Lift 7 with none of the anonymous, bland hotel decor. This adorably cozy condominium even has access to a heated pool and hot tub, which you’ll definitely need after days of exploring Telluride Ski Resort’s 127 trails, three terrain parks and an average snowfall of 309 inches.
From $212, sleeps 7
The Picture-Perfect Mountain Cabin
This log cabin isn’t just pretty as a postcard, it’s also super-conveniently located. While there, you’ll enjoy the sounds of the creek and maybe even a few animal friends (more than one review mentions elk strolling through the yard), but hop in the car and you’re only a seven-minute drive to downtown Sun Valley, Idaho. Better yet, you’re only three from the base of the mountain.
From $200, sleeps 5
The Open Concept Chalet
It takes less than ten minutes to drive from this place to the base of Stowe Mountain, Vermont, and even less time to fall in love with its winter-themed decor. P.S. Waiting for you upon arrival is a fridge stocked with locally-brewed beers, along with a foosball table primed and ready for a little friendly competition.
From $375, sleeps 11
The Palatial Cabin
With multiple kitchens and TVs (there’s basically a set in every room), this five-bedroom home has plenty of room for families and friends to get comfortable. But if you do want to venture out, the cabin is built into the hillside in the Peak 7 Area of Breckenridge, Colorado; so it’s just a five-minute drive to the resort base area and just another two to get downtown. Be aware: Four-wheel-drive vehicles are a must during peak snow season.
From $371, sleeps 13
The Modern Apartment
Another Park City stunner, this time located in the heart of Old Town. A 30-second walk (literally) to Town Lift makes this place about as close to ski on/ski off as you can get without actually being on the mountain itself. Be sure to check out the stained glass windows that lend a nod to the historic district that surrounds you.
From $143, sleeps 10
The Vaulted-Ceiling Duplex
Panoramic views, two (count ’em) fireplaces and a cozy deck make this Jackson Hole lodge almost as much fun to hang out in as the slopes you came to ski down. And with tons of great restaurants, bars, shops and galleries just a few minutes’ walk away, even those who didn’t come to ski are guaranteed to have fun.
From $438, sleeps 8
The House That Sleeps 16
This rental has more than enough beds to fit you, your kids, your siblings, their kids, your parents and the friendly couple you met at the grocery store just last week. And with Hunter Mountain just a two-minute drive down the road, there’s no need to coordinate schedules between all 16 of your guests. Finally, a family vacation that actually feels like a vacation instead of a battle.
