Why do your costs look different than I see on outside websites?
Our website, www.skicountry.com, will always reflect the most accurate and best rates available for all of our properties. Many third party sites (including but not limited to AirBnB, VRBO, HomeAway) may not advertise our current specials and may charge an additional service fee up to 5% of the total rent. This service fee is not a fee instituted by Ski Country Resorts and may not be negotiable or refundable. To guarantee you are securing the best rate for your stay, we recommend that you always book directly with Ski Country Resorts. To ensure even more piece of mind, Ski Country Resorts offers a Lowest Rate Guarantee.
Do you offer transportation to and from the airport?
*10% Discount automatically applied when booking online via link above.
Is a car necessary during my visit?
Most of Ski Country's properties are within walking distance of historic Main Street and the Slopes. In addition, the majority of Breckenridge neighborhoods are serviced by the Free Ride Transportation System. Ski Country Resorts also offers a complimentary VIP Shuttle to all our guests available on an on-call, seasonal basis. (hours vary based on season)
If traveling outside of Breckenridge to any nearby Summit County towns, the Free Summit Stage is a convienent and reliable source of transportation. Or, recently, popular car hailing services such as Uber & Lyft have become available throughout Breckenridge & Summit County.
Do you have any recommended activities while visiting the area?

Can you help with any other discounts?
We sure can! At Ski Country, we've teamed up with several preferred vendors to ensure we bring you the lowest rates around.
Season Passes | Lift Tickets
If you are planning on skiing/riding more than 4 days during your Breckenridge visit (or plan to make multiple visits) we highly recommend the purchase of a Season Pass. Enjoy several benefits including Ski With A Friend passes, the ability to take advantage of the premiere EpicMix app and access to 5 other resorts all just within an hour drive of Breckenridge!
If you'd rather purchase daily lift tickets for your visit, it is best to pre-purchase your lift tickets at least 7 days prior to your arrival to ensure the lowest possible rate! In addition, pre-purchasing your lift tickets gives you the ability to skip the ticket window and go straight to the lifts!

Why purchase new gear or pay exorbitant baggage fees to lug around your current (most likely) outdated ski or snowboard gear when you can rent the newest, most fashionable outdoor gear and apparel to be shipped directly to you in Breckenridge!? Our friends at Kit Lender offer the world's most premier outdoor apparel rental service. With their streamlined system you get the right rental gear at the right price, without any of the headache.

Is it true that most Breckenridge homes do not have Air Conditioning?
It may come as a surprise to some guests, but almost all vacation rentals in Breckenridge & Summit County do not have air conditioning. Although this may seem unthinkable in warm and humid climates at lower elevations, Breckenridge sits at 9,600 feet above sea level and has a very dry climate. Both of these characteristics make air conditioning irrelevant about 11 months out of the year. On average, the highest outside temperature in Breckenridge reaches about 78 degrees. Another benefit to Breckenridge's high elevation and lack of humidity is our scarcity of bugs, so feel free to open the windows and let the fresh, cool mountain air in! (In addition, all units are equipped with portable fans for use as needed)
HELPFUL STAY INFORMATION
Where do I pick up keys?
Our check-in/check-out location is convienently located in Downtown Breckenridge at 213 North Main Street, Breckenridge CO 80424. Here you will sign guest registration, receive keys to your rental and receive all necessary information for your specific unit.
In addition to a full service check in experience with knowlegeable and friendly staff ready to answer any questions you may have, our centrally located check in location offers several other benefits to you including close and convienent access to the Breckenridge Transportation Center and BreckConnect Gondola as well as a shared location with Christy Sports, offering guests a 20% VIP discount on all equipment rentals.
What time is Check in and Check out?
Can I request an earlier check in and/or later check out?
Due to the nature of the vacation rental industry, and so that we may properly prepare for each guest, we are unable to accommodate early Check in or late Check out requests. Should you have available time on your arrival/departure date, our knowledgeable staff is happy to recommend/book any of the exciting & unique activities that Breckenridge has to offer. Or browse & book a variety of our favorite fun and unique activities by clicking the link below!
Can you accommodate after hour check ins?
Should you be arriving after office hours, we do have a late arrival lock box. Please contact us ahead of time to make arrangements and receive full instruction.
Can I expect daily cleaning services?
Serviced condos and homes are a flexible and cost effective alternative to hotels. For this reason, daily housekeeping services are not a typical service that is provided on shorter stays. Your clean fee ensures that your rental is thoroughly cleaned and maintained prior to your arrival and covers the one-time set up of all linens and towels. We also provide a complimentary "starter kit" of different household items (listed below).
For stays a week (7+ nights) or longer, we do provide a complimentary mid-stay towel change and for stays longer than a week (8+ nights) a mid-stay clean will be provided with fresh linens and towels. At any point during your stay, should you find you need additional towels, simply stop by our office or give us a call. We are also happy to arrange additional services, for a monetary fee. Feel free to contact us to inquire.
What supplies will be provided for me?
An initial supply of toilet paper, Kleenex, dish detergent, soap, garbage bags, paper towels, salt, pepper & basic spices will be provided for you. There is a local grocery store for anything else you may need.
What are your parking procedures?
It is important that you are aware of Breckenridge’s limited available parking throughout town. We encourage you to know your unit’s designated parking allotment in advance and plan accordingly. Any number of vehicles over the amount allowed by the HOA will be required to park in paid overflow.
To help alleviate the need for multiple vehicles during your visit, Ski Country Resorts is happy to offer a complimentary VIP Shuttle with service to anywhere throughout town! This service is complimentary (although cash gratuity is greatly appreciated) and available to our guests on a seasonal, on-call basis. (hours vary based on season)
Please also not that, due to HOA Policies, vehicles are not to remain parked on location past 10am on day of check out (as displayed on parking permit) and violators may be subject to towing. Should you wish to hit the slopes, or simply explore Breckenridge a little more, the Gondola South Lot is conveniently located behind Ski Country offices and offers paid daily hourly parking at varying prices, depending on season.
