About Our Family
Our family is comprised of Skip, Jennifer, and our son, George. We have traded over 10 times with Intervac. Through Intervac, we have exchanged with friends in Ireland, Iceland, Canada, Scotland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Mexico,and Finland. We love Intervac.
My husband's parents took him on his first Intervac trade to London in the 1970s! We are very open to trading, and even if we do not list your country on our wish list, contact us. Airfare deals really tends to help us decide where to travel next.
Winter--Our condo at Snow Bridge is fun in the winter -- there is no need to drive, park, or take the shuttle bus. You can walk to the ski slopes from our door in 5 minutes. We have a red wagon to pull your skis, if you like. There are other great winter activities, too: sledding, skating, and snow shoeing. We have ice skates and snow shoes for you to use, while you visit. In the Winter of 2014, we received over 400 inches of snow in Summit County!
