    I just tried to place an exchange request both online and over the phone for Estes Park, CO
    Online they now have a list of resorts they will accept requests for. No Estes Park resort is listed. So I called, and was told they only accept requests for resorts listed since they have never had a deposit from other resorts.

    In the past they would accept requests based on region or city. This appears to be a new business model. Maybe tied to their purchase by II (I think I recall that).

    It sounds like that they are attempting to manage expectations. If they do not ever receive deposits for Estes Park, by not accepting the request at least you won't get your hopes up to get what is an impossible exchange through them. I personally see this as a good thing.

    I have asked other exchange companies to tell me how many deposits that they have received for a particular area or resort, and it is like pulling teeth to get an answer (and even then it is vague "well, we don't get very many deposits for that resort". My real question is, "do you *ever* get deposits for what I am looking for?". If the answer is no, then let me know so that I can choose something else.

    I gave them my Smugglers Notch week once- a pink week. I think it was the one and only time they got one for Smuggs.
