Bluegreeen Vacations to go private

Not sure if this will affect one of the best Choice Privileges redemptions. Since the company will still exist, hopefully we'll be OK.

I strongly suspect the redemption option using Choice points will bite the dust. And I will miss it. I love spending 20k points to get $550 of lodging value for my ski trips. 40k points to put up 12 people a night for my Aspen ski trips is about as good as it can get without hoping to use someone’s large house in the area.

I have stayed at one of their resorts for the last 2 years, I was looking to stay again this summer as well.
The dates I have been looking at have had several rooms with lots of availability for months, then today (the day before 100 days out), there are suddenly no rooms at all. Do they just not want people with points to be able to book?

I called them on the phone, and they still have rooms for those dates....

Edit: I called choice and complained, and now there is availability.
