Karen, you are correct -- ski in/out can be a little vague. You should define exactly what you want. To me, ski in/out means that I can walk out the door, put the skis on and ski to a lift. And I can easily ski back to that door. That characterist is not common to many of the older resorts. The newer resorts and the expansion of the older resorts are putting more condos on the slopes to provide this convenience.

Breckenridge has a lot of ski-in off of the 4 o;clock run. The 4 o'clock run in not great because it is just a skid road, the traffic can be heavy towards the end of the day and it is not easy to get to. You can use 4 o'clock to get out but it ends in town and you to take a bus to a base/chair area. The Snowflake chair (further to the north) does provide son true in and out. Some of that ski in/out may require a short hike (block or so) to the slope.

The in/out is very limited at Vail mostly because most of the sking is on the other side of the mountain from the Vail base. Copper is in the process of build some in/out condos on the west end and has a few around the old base.

Bacholar Gulch (Beaver Creek complex) has an extensive complex of condos built on the slopes and would met your desire for in/out. BG is a great ski area but is bit more expensive.

Probably the best place for true in/out is Snowmass (Aspen complex) Snowmass is my favorite curising mountain so give it a shot,

Loveland opened earlier this week, And by the end of this week, most the Summit County ski areas will had received at least two feet or more of new snow. Everyone thing should be open within another two weeks or so.
