Using AC during week 52

Hi - first time using an AC that I got for depositing my week at DSVII. I know that the trading power of AC's are moderate at best, especially for high season weeks. What I don't understand is how the 59 day rule works for flexchange.

I'd like to use my AC checking into a resort on December 26 or 27, in a ski resort area. I'm willing to go to Tahoe, Salt Lake, Mammoth, etc. Should I be checking every hour starting tomorrow given it would be within the flexchange window for something? Any help or suggestions very much appreciated for this noob.

Your AC should say whether it can be used during specific holiday dates or not. If it's not blocked from that week, then your best bet is to do exactly as you suggested - check online frequently.
