Yesterday I spoke to an RCI guide and the ongoing search for the Grand Tetons area doesn't look good. I pulled an expanded search today and could get a 3 bedroom at Elkhorn Resort 5/27. It looks like a beautiful area. My son and I are interested in the scenery, wildlife, and hiking. It seems it has all that. Should I grab it, or keep hopeing something will come up in the Teton area? :confused:
Thank you!

Elkhorn's appeal would be Manitoba's national park. It is very beautiful. The nearest town is Wasagaming. The weather in late May can be iffy - in the 40's or in the 60's depending. Hiking, scenery and wildlife are wonderful. Horseback riding is a popular activity at the resort. There is a review of a three-bedroom cabin on the tug reviews page.

Tough decision! What resort are you using for the exchange?

We were there in May two years ago, and had a great week. It is a very restful place - great for hiking and horse back riding. There is a buffalo park nearby. We drove to Dauphin one day - a Ukrainian town, and Brandon another day. The rooms in the unit are very small, but well equipped. There is a spa on site, and a nice restaurant. The weather was very pleasant while we were there The area of Clear Lake opens officially for the Victoria Day holiday {May 22}. It is the only resort that we have been to that has a "Doggie B&B"!! I think that you would enjoy the resort if you want scenery, wildlife and hiking,

I can't provide any advice as it relates to the Tetons, but I would advise that this should be a good place for wildlife, scenery and hiking and would agree with the other 2 comments. I am an owner at Elkhorn and quite familiar with the resortr so if you have specific questions about the resort, you can contact me and I will try to answer your questions.

What time zone does this area observe -- time zone in the US sense? Is the nearest airport located in Winnipeg?

Are there other Canadian timeshares located in areas near wildlife?
