Denver Woman wins $5,500 Ski Vacation in ResortQuest $1-A-Day Vacation Treasure Hunt


FORT WALTON BEACH, FLA. (Feb. 15, 2010) — Lisa H. of Denver, Colo., is only going to spend $5 on her husband's anniversary present this year because she won the latest ResortQuest Vacation Treasure Hunt contest Tuesday, Feb. 9. Lisa won a five-night stay for $1 a day at the Torian Plum Creekside Resort, one of the premier ski-in/ski-out properties in Steamboat Springs, Colo. The vacation at the gold-rated two-bedroom, three-bath condo is valued at $5,500.

"I am from Denver and am somewhat familiar with the local resorts," said Lisa. "I decided to study all the ResortQuest Web sites so I could learn what each resort had to offer, and familiarize myself with the resort properties located outside Colorado. I started studying the sites when I didn't get the "catch-em‚ clue from a couple weeks ago that would have been a big clue!"

Lisa says the timing of her five-day ski vacation couldn't have been better, as it is just a couple of weeks before her third wedding anniversary.

It was indeed a happy Groundhog Day for Chelsea B. of Ocala, Fla., when she won the latest ResortQuest Vacation Treasure Hunt contest held Tuesday, Feb 2. She's glad Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow today because she won a five-night ski vacation for $1 a day at the gold-rated Resort Plaza in Park City, Utah ˜ a prize valued at $5,000.

Chelsea entered the contest while at work at her job as a customer-service representative for a nationwide nonprofit, but, she said, "My boss was very happy for me when I won."

She had tried her hand at the two previous treasure hunts, without success, but was thrilled at the prospect of going skiing in Park City: "I've gone on two 10-day trips to Breckenridge, and I took to skiing like a duck to water," said Chelsea. "I think I was born in the wrong state because I was born and raised in Florida, but I love to ski."
