DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - Denver District Court Judge Robert McGahey ordered Sea to Ski Vacations and its owners Andrew Wunder, Bethany Wunder, Christian Wunder and Stephen Wunder to pay more than $7 million in penalties and restitution to consumers for violations of the Colorado Consumer Protection Act.

The Wunders also went by the following names: Mark Dutell, Stephen Andrews,Michael Miller, Andrew Stephens, and Bethany Gonsowski.

McGahey also prohibited the Wunders from owning, managing or operating travel-related businesses again because of their deceptive business practices.

"Consumers complained that they were told membership in the travel club would entitle them to deep discounts on condos and cruises," said Attorney General John Suthers. "Yet, after paying as much as $9,000 for a membership, the Sea to Ski 'deals' were no better than what the consumer could purchase on popular Internet travel sites. We proved that the Wunders were operating a scam."
