Investing in a ski week resale

I've done a lot of searching and reading here... would love knowledgable feedback... options right now

Marriott Mountain Valley lodge - platinum season - Studio. My mom is Marriott with a week and points and our family it too big now for us to all travel on her contract (every other year is starting to be a stretch now with the increase in points per night at the resorts we use two years of points for 3 units and i think even have to borrow ahead). I'd like to have priority in II so this is def interesting as is ski in ski out with my 6 year old. But the studio is a little small for us now though we are a family of 3.

Grand Timber winter 2 bed 2 bath LO - even years. Maitenance being smaller for the EOY contract and with the LO.... is great. The whole booking and getting a random week blows - who thought of that process? Could take what I get, lock off and trade one and rent the other to cover mait? Or trade for two weeks at other locations? We love Park City - is it possible to get into Park City Mountain Side or Canyons with a GTL trade? Could I trade back into GTL or Grand Peak or is there a block on that like DVC has with Orlando? Day Use and Bonus days sweeten the deal and get us out of the insane heat in Austin maybe?

Gold Point - 3/3 bath locked for week 10 annually when my daughter has spring break but the BBB reviews for Vacatia management online are ROUGH. And the units seems to be rough - going through slow improvements. Maitenance is about the same at GTL for more room and sleeping more people. The size of the unit and being able to bring family or rent to a family maybe would be amazing. Just having the 3/3 to trade seems like overkill? Or will I get hawaii or aruba or other gorgeous beachy options with a PRIME large ski week in trade when we can't use? Or rent?

Thanks for any expertise you care to share. I appreciate this board so much as it saved me from selling my mom's gold ocean watch week back when we were in Marco Island in July!!
