Ask the Timeshare Crusader

Lisa Ann Schrier Our "Ask the Timeshare Crusader" series continues this month with a question from Erin:

Member Review:

"Fantastic resort experience nestled right against Breckenridge Ski Resort in one of the coolest ski towns in Colorado. We really enjoy going up to Breck to spend time away from it all and enjoy the fresh mountain air. There is tons to do both at the resort as well as in the surrounding area. Highly recommend! We were very impressed and will be back."
