I'm exploring options for a trip in January and was thinking we might want to do a ski vacation. Has anyone ever exchanged for Club Intrawest Tremblant in Quebec? We are thinking of going in January, how exactly does this work? Does one of their owners have to want a DVC trade, or is it so long as a room is available we get to book it? We can book at 7 months, but if its a trade sort of deal I'm not sure I want to chance that one.

Also any feedback on this resort would be much appreciated:thumbsup2

I guess the main point I'm looking to clarify is what does "based on availability" mean. Does it mean "so long as the resort has a room" or "so long as a Club Intrawest owner wants to trade for DVC." We've been in DVC for 2 years and I've never considered using my points outside of DVC, so sorry if this is a dumb question.

My understanding is that they allow limited reservations back and forth trying to keep them in balance. Think of it from the other side. If a CI member wanted to schedule, they could schedule DVC as a direct points reservation before the 7 month window opened and BEFORE CI gave DVC anything in return.
