Bring the Whole Family! Visit the “Best” Family Ski Destinations with Wyndham Vacation Rentals®

World’s largest professionally managed vacation rental company offers properties in five of Fodor’s top-ranked U.S. ski destinations for families

Wyndham Vacation Rentals®, the world’s largest professionally managed vacation rental business and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE: WYN), today announced that it offers vacation rental accommodations in five of the top U.S. ski destinations for families, as reported in Fodor’s recent “10 Best US Ski Resorts for Families” list. From ski-in/ski-out condominiums and luxury townhomes to private mountain residences, Wyndham Vacation Rentals offers authentic ski accommodations to meet the different lifestyles and budgets of traveling families.

“Fodor’s list recognizes a great group of ski destinations that cater specifically to families and that feature slopes and off-the-mountain fun everyone can enjoy,” said Bob Milne, president, Wyndham Vacation Rentals North America. “As a skier myself, I know how important it is when traveling with family to find both a destination and accommodations to please the whole group. Our trusted vacation rental properties offer the best of both worlds, giving families the space and privacy they need with the added hotel-like services and amenities they want when they hit the slopes together.”

Beaver Creek, Colo. and Keystone, Colo.: Beaver Creek made Fodor’s list this year for its safe slopes and wide variety of entertainment, from sleigh rides and ice skating to shopping in town. Joining Beaver Creek on the list, Keystone was praised for its kid-friendly activities, including weekend fireworks, mountain light shows, parades, and snowcat tours. Wyndham Vacation Rentals offers a range of properties in Colorado, from ski-in/ski-out condos at The Borders Lodge in Beaver Creek, to one and two-bedroom condos at Silver Mill at River Run in Keystone, just steps from the gondola. Guests can fly into Eagle or Denver to visit these ski towns.

Canyons Resort and Deer Valley, Utah: Canyons Resort in Park City earned a spot on the list for its exciting winter activities from zip-lining and heli-skiing to guided snowshoe tours, sleigh rides, and three different terrain parks. Utah earned additional recognition with Deer Valley, which was highlighted for its exciting athletic attractions like onsite NASTAR ski racing. Guests can stay at a Wyndham Vacation Rentals private mountain home or spacious condo in either destination, from Sundial Lodge at the base of the Canyons to Black Bear Lodge in Deer Valley. Both destinations can be accessed with air service into the Salt Lake City airport.

Sun Valley, Idaho: Sun Valley also joined the ranks for its cross-country skiing and annual Nordic Festival (Jan. 25, 2014 – Feb. 2, 2014), along with its abundance of indoor activities from virtual golf and bowling to its grand theater. Guests can enjoy the comforts of home after enjoying the area’s activities at one of Wyndham Vacation Rentals’ properties, from private mountain homes to condos and townhomes like Ski View. Sun Valley is located approximately 14 miles away from the Friedman Memorial Airport in Hailey.

Ideal for families and larger groups, many Wyndham Vacation Rentals properties offer amenities like kitchens, a washer and dryer, multiple bedrooms for privacy, and ample space for everyone to come together under one roof. In addition to the in-home conveniences of a vacation rental property, many ski properties include added perks like ski and snowboard valet, rental equipment delivery, storage space for ski equipment, gas or wood-burning fireplaces, private decks with hot tubs, heated underground parking, amazing mountain views, and convenient complimentary shuttle service to shopping and dining. Wyndham Vacation Rentals also offers guests a Vacation Rental Bill of Rights®, which allows them to enjoy peace of mind throughout the entire vacation rental experience.
