RESORT TYPE: Equity residence club

STYLE: Deer Valley decadence

OVERVIEW: Located within the all-season resort of Deer Valley, Utah, residents have access to first-class amenities, services, and activities, including: worldclass skiing, hiking, fishing, mountain biking and horseback riding. Each member receives a one-sixth, undivided, deeded interest in a residence, plus access to all amenities and services during their stay. Owners are guaranteed four weeks of planned vacations each year (14 days each in summer and winter.)

WL TAKE: For $379,000, owners can walk from their back doors to ski at Deer Valley – homeowners in Aspen are paying up to three times that amount to slog through daily resort traffic to get to the slopes. Are you a film buff? There is no better place to stay during Sundance Film Festival. Prefer sun to snow? Members can exchange via the ELITE Alliance with various “The Residence Club” properties, including Tucker’s Point in Bermuda (see previous page). The only downside is that you are in a condo, not an individual home.

PERKS: Ski valet, pre-arrival grocery service, concierge, Marc Raymond’s Tranquility Spa & Salon, award-winning Bistro Toujours restaurant on-site, private in-town shuttle service, and great staff.

COST: Three-bedroom residence $379,000; fourbedroom residence $469,000; four bedroom penthouses are sold out.
