Spring Break 2020 with friends that have never been to Colorado before let alone snow skiing! They had been looking forward to this week for almost a year. The day finally came for the drive up with clear skies, and it went great along with a stop in Idaho Springs for some pizza. However, things started to change at Saturday check-in when we found out that an hour before we got there Vail had decided to close down operations for the next week starting on Sunday. Ok, we will just ski Copper Mountain this go ’round. We had a theater room booked for Saturday night, so we checked out Main Street and then came back up and enjoyed a theater style movie. That’s when things really changed. On the way back up to the room after the movie, we were politely asked to return to our primary residence immediately by order of the Governor. That ended our Spring Break 2020, as it did many others. Our friends were bummed to say the least, but understood completely. However, we are owners so we’ll try again in ’22. We rebooked a stay in the Fall with my parents and my brother in a 3 bedroom @ GL7. My family on this trip has been to Breckenridge, but never in our “second home” at GL7. They loved it. We did the movie theater, a Boreas Pass drive in the Fall (outstanding), a day trip to the Maroon Bells with the fall color (jaw dropping), and much need rest and relaxation. So 2020 wasn’t a complete loss, for us anyway, after all. My parents are 85 and 86, and are world travelers. They have been timeshare owners for almost 30 years, and have been to over 30 different timeshares all over the world and throughout the US. My dad said GL7 would rank #3 of all the timeshares he and my mom have visited. #1 and #2 are both in Hawaii. He also indicated that if his ranking was only on the people working the resort then GL7 would have been #1 by a long shot. He was extremely impressed with “hellos, good afternoons, and the welcome homes” coming from the workers, so thank you GL7 for just doing what you do. It really does make a difference.
