Miami, Florida, March 27, 2017 – Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of ILG (Nasdaq: ILG), announced an agreement with The Christie Lodge in Avon, Colorado, to provide a broad range of programs and services to enhance the benefits of ownership and reinforce the value of exchange. Owners and new purchasers will also be offered more flexibility with Club Interval Gold® membership.
"We chose Interval as our exchange company because the company understands the legacy resort segment and our business needs," said Lisa Siegert- Free, general manager of The Christie Lodge. "With this new partnership, our available inventory, and a robust renovation program, we are entering a new phase that will provide current and future owners with even more outstanding vacation experiences."

Spacious one- and three-bedroom fully furnished suites include kitchenette, two flat-screen televisions, seasonal wood-burning fireplace, and private balcony. Currently under renovation, all suites will also feature upgraded bathrooms and kitchens, bamboo floors, and new fixtures and furnishings. Upgrades are scheduled to be completed in summer 2017.
Amenities include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, four hot tubs, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, fire pit with lounge chairs, six outdoor picnic areas with gas grills, game room, newly remodeled fitness center, kids activity area, concierge services, on-site sporting goods rental and retail shop, two restaurants, and a business center.
Besides enjoying the incredible vistas, guests can participate in a number of exciting activities. Less than a mile away along the legendary Beaver Creek Resort, there is ample opportunity for world-class snow sports, such as skiing, snowmobiling, and snowboarding.
During spring, summer, and fall, miles of trails allow for hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking through lush meadows and rugged peaks. Fishing, kayaking, and paddle boarding are also popular, in addition to golf at the various nearby courses.
"Along with an extensive redesign, the overall management of the resort speaks volumes about this team’s abilities," Gilbert added. "The Christie Lodge is a very appealing destination for members and guests seeking outdoor adventure."
