Overstock.com Simplifies Travel Planning for Top Ski Resorts in North America

Thousands of Privately Owned Homes, Condos & Hotels Available to Rent on Overstock.com Travel; Certified Resort Experts on Hand to Help Book Lodging, Airfare & Car Rental

SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Just in time for the start of the ski season, thousands of privately owned homes, condominiums and hotels at top ski resorts are available for rent through Overstock.com(R) (NASDAQ:OSTK) , including those rated as the top 10 in North America by Ski Magazine readers:

1. Deer Valley, Utah
2. Vail, Colo.
3. Whistler/Blackcomb, B.C.
4. Snowmass, Colo.
5. Park City, Utah
6. Beaver Creek, Colo.

“The nature of our business is connecting a fragmented supply and demand,” said Patrick Byrne, president of Overstock.com. “Mountain rentals fit that model perfectly. We’re helping connect homeowners to vacationers across the country and providing customers with great values and the best service and resort expertise.”

In the past, to find these privately-owned ski mountain rentals, vacationers typically had to sift through local classified ads and the Web sites of multiple property managers only to discover that the inventory provided was often limited and the information incomplete. Through its acquisition of niche travel company Ski West, Overstock.com consolidates thousands of rentals, giving vacationers one place to look online for mountain lodging.

This year’s number-one rated ski resort, Deer Valley, for example has 500 unique property listings on Overstock.com(TM) Travel for the week of Christmas through New Year’s, with properties ranging from six-bedroom ski lodges to one-bedroom condos.

Booking a reservation takes two simple steps:

1. Search and select an available rental by date and resort location;
2. Call 1-800-754-9378 to confirm the reservation with one of
Overstock.com’s travel advisors who are trained and certified as experts
