Does anyone have any experience with booking at 8 months out either a 1 BR (preferred) or a studio weeks 48 to 50? I'm thinking about talking hubby into going if I "dangle the carrot" :) of going to one of the Avon CO resorts sometime in the summer, so I can hit the beach in Dec. We have enough options to stay in 1 BR at each. Just curious if I have any chance of making this work? (It's not that he doesn't like the beach, we now own at WSJ and that is a February fixed week, so talking him into Cancun in Dec might be a stretch!) I guess I am also banking on easily getting into one of the ski resorts in the summer too!

Thanx for any insight-

Weeks 48-50 are probably the lowest demand weeks of the entire year. So it should be an easy StarOption reservation.
