Club Intrawest Information overview

By Bill Bunker

The information in this article is correct to the best of my knowledge. I am not an employee of Club Intrawest or Intrawest Corp, just an owner of points. I have not been paid for this article. The purpose is to enhance your knowledge of Club Intrawest. Much of this information is taken from www.Clubintrawest.com

Club Intrawest is a private points-base, resort club with eight exclusive resorts around the world, each uniquely designed to reflect the culture and architecture of the region. Most are four-season resorts to fit any vacation style. More than 30,000 people from 47 countries are Club Intrawest Members.

 Intrawest Corporation – a world leader in the leisure and development industry, manages club Intrawest. Intrawest is renown for building vibrant village resorts in spectacular destinations. Intrawest owns and operates Whistler Blackcomb, North America’s most popular mountain resort. It also owns or manages 12 other exclusive village resorts including Mammoth, Squaw Valley, Tremblant and Lake Las Vegas. Six additional resorts are currently in development.

  • Intrawest is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia
  • Eight Locations — Each Uniquely-Styled
  • Membership gives you vacation privileges at all eight Club locations. ( No home resorts) No two properties are alike, but they all share a common standard of excellence.

How the Club Works:

When you become a Club Intrawest Member, you receive an annual allotment of Resort Points — this is the currency you use to vacation throughout the Club Intrawest network. Every year you receive a new allotment of Resort Points. Membership lasts forever and can be shared with friends and family. 

  • Reservations for 6 nights or more can be made up to 11 months in advance.
  • Reservations of less than 6 nights can be made up to 6 months in advance.
  • Consecutive Reservations:  If a reservation for 6 nights or more has been made for one Club location, a second reservation at another Club location for dates directly preceding or following the first reservation may be made up to 11 months in advance for a minimum 2 night stay.
  • Weekend Reservations There is a 2 night minimum on all weekends.  One weekend reservation may be held at a time for each 80 Resort Points owned.

Use the following guide for when Members generally make their vacation plans:

  • Holiday Season -- 11 months in advance
  • Peak Season -- 6 to 11 months in advance
  • Activity Season -- 1 to 6 months in advance
  • Relax and Opportunity Seasons -- 1 to 3 months in advance









Estimated Points needed for stays?

150                1 bedroom       1 week             Peak Season

200                2 bedroom       1 week             Peak Season

200                1 bedroom       1 week             Holiday Season

 *  Sorry, The official point charts are not available online to anyone not a Club Intrawest member.

  • Resort Points can be banked or borrowed to/from the following year.
  • Resort Points are withdrawn from the Use Year in which your travel dates occur. 



Exchange Opportunities?



Club Intrawest has an exchange program called ExtraOrdinary Escapes. ExtraOrdinary Escapes vacations can be reserved up to 12 months in advance of your desired travel dates.  You can also use your points with independent resort, hotel and cruise partners.  

When making an exchange, you do not reserve a specific week or location but simply pay with points. (ie 150 pts is a 2 bedroom, 1 week)

ExtraOrdinary Escapes also now has a direct deal with HGVC, were you can make point reservations at the HGVC main locations. There is a $20/night charge and the reservations are non refundable. 

Club Intrawest also has an association with Interval International. You can reserve a Sunday week at three of their locations ( Whistler, Palm Desert and Tremblant) and deposit it into II. 

Club Intrawest resorts can also be exchanged with the several independent TS companies.

 

CI is currently making joining ExtraOrdinary Escapes(EE) difficult for persons buying CI memberships resale from the current owners.

 First,  CI says that if you do a TS presentation at CI, then buy resale ( within 2 years) CI will not allow you to join EE . And, CI will allow you to join EE if you don’t pay more than $125/pt for your resale membership. 




Cost?


Price..

The developer is currently selling points for approx $165 / point. Most offers I’ve seen for resell of Club Intrawest points are at about $85-90 / point. There is also a $650 charge to transfer membership points to a new owner.  

CI only allows resale transfers of membership points, which are at least 120 points. So you can’t add on to your CI membership by buying resale unless you add on at least 120 more points.
