exchanging penthouse

I'm sorry, I should change my name from Mossimo to Confused in Mexico. I have a 3 bedroom penthouse at the Hacienda del Mar in Cabo. I can't use it next year. Who should I bank it with? RCI, SFX, HSI, any other 3 letter exchange programs? Because I teach, even in the summer, my schedule is not very flexible. Ideally I would like to go to Aspen during Spring break. RCI does not have any Aspen listings. Any recommendations or suggestions? Thank you my patient friends.

I second trying to rent it. be a shame to get so little in return from an exchange thru an exchange company. direct exchange might work for you to get desired value, also.
