If you can buy a Marriott Park City Ski week for $12,500, then I believe that is a fantastic deal.

Park City is a great ski town and the Marriott is in a great location (both of them) and at these prices, if you are serious about going skiing every year, you may be better buying than taking a chance renting.

My only concern wold be getting the exact week you want as Marriott plays favoritism with multiweek owners (13 month booking vs 12) that tip the scales of fairness and opportunity AWAY from a single week owner.

Then again, if you can rent a 2 bedroom from an owner for $2,500, that is also a good deal as the annual dues is over $1,000, so you are paying $1,500 extra and it would take about 8-10 years to break even on renting vs owning.

Quick update: on the recommendation of others on TUG, we have been working with Samuel Rodriguez on both our WKORV and GTL purchases. He was able to find us a GTL 2BR Annual unit for what seems like a VERY good deal. I'll disclose the amount once we move into escrow. ;)

We sent the paperwork back yesterday and are hopeful that everything will move forward without issue. Fingers crossed! :)

Hi Feckman - curious to see what you ended up paying for the 2BR Grand Timber Lodge (assuming its Winter ski season)?

Grand Timber Lodge does have ROFR and is aggressive in exercising it for EOY winter weeks that sell below $5,000 and for annual weeks that sell below $8,000.

It's also not ski-in/ski-out. It's walk out (and a pretty good walk) and ski in under good conditions (but typically not in the early or late season).

That said, it's a great resort and certainly worth your consideration.

Definitely, thanks! We're really hoping for annual, but if the price is right... :)

Does anyone know how the EOY works when the season spans years? In other words, when the weeks are 48-50 and 1-15, which year do you actually get the unit?

Thanks again.
Strangely for a skier!

Consider the 2016 use year 48-52 would be say the 2016-2017 season and 1-15 would be the 2015-2016 season.
