Slow Cooking on the Road

Lake Tahoe

After a long day of sight-seeing, we love coming back to our cozy room to find a delicious dinner waiting for us… which is easy to do with the help of a slow cooker! We have slow cookers available for our guests at most of our locations — just stop by the front desk and ask about checking one out. (While you’re there, don’t forget to explore our DVD and book libraries, which are also free to check out at all of our resorts.)

Travel Tips

Seasoned travelers are generally full of advice about how to make a trip as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Here are a few of our favorite tips:

  • Make a list. Whether it’s things you need to pack or places you’d like to visit, lists help ensure that nothing will be forgotten (and provide peace of mind, too). It’s also a fun way to start planning your next adventure.
  • Carry chargers with you. Especially if you’re flying to your destination, there’s nothing worse than worrying about a depleted battery mid-trip. Throw that charger in your carry-on and relax!
  • Stay hydrated. Whether you’re traveling by car or plane, visiting a warm climate or engaged in outdoor activities, it’s easy to forget to drink enough water. Dehydration can really throw off a vacation, so remember to drink up!
  • Be flexible. Life doesn’t always go as planned, so use your vacation as a time to make the most of whatever is happening around you. The unexpected may lead to a new favorite memory.
  • Take pictures! Get comfortable with your favorite camera (which may be your phone), so that when the perfect moment arrives, you’re ready to capture it.

How to Get a Killer Exchange

Ready to explore the world beyond our four home resorts? With affiliations all over the world and an in-house direct exchange department, it couldn’t be easier to broaden your horizons! Here’s what you need to know to help your exchange go as smoothly as possible:

  • Contact us with your exchange request as early as possible (8-12 months out is ideal). The more time you give us, the more likely it is that we’ll be able to find just what you want.
  • Be as flexible as you can with your travel dates, location, unit size, etc.
  • Travel off-season! This is a savvy traveller’s best tip. Not only is it easier to find accommodations, but you’ll avoid the crowds everywhere else, too!

Our friendly Direct Exchange Department would love to give you more information and answer any questions you may have. Contact us at (800) 359-6753, and press 2 for the Direct Exchange Department. Or start by exploring our lists of U.S. and International Direct Exchanges.
