Summit Watch - strong trader?

I recently purchased a Summit Watch Platinum, and we are going there for the first time in a few weeks (can't wait). I'm also getting ready to book for next year (12 months out) and need advice. Since we are gonig there this year, I will likely want to trade next year for another location, so I'm looking to book my 2007 week during a time that trades strong.

Would you recommend President's Day Week 2007?
Spring Break 2007?
Is one a stronger than the other?
Anything else that trades strong?
Does check in on Friday versus Saturday affect trading power?

Any advice would be appreciated.

I would think the Sundance Film Festival would be the top week in platinum season, however, that sounds pretty difficult to reserve. Then my guess would be President's week. Spring break is so different for so many schools....

Easter is April 8th next year which might be a good pick also as it is the last week in the first part of the platinum season.

A Friday check-in probably doesn't make a huge difference, however, we prefer Sat or Sun just so you aren't taking vacation in two different weeks.

I've owned at Summit Watch for three years and I have had great trading success, with comparable trades to Sheraton mountain Vista and Streamside at Vail. I split off one year's unit and the efficiency pulled a 1 BR at Vail. Pretty good! Enjoy the Utah snow!
