Winter is fast approaching that means the ski season will be upon us in no time. For “avid skiers” that means waxing those bottoms, sharpening those edges and watching the weather and ski reports. For those “extremely avid and extremely rich skiers” this also might mean getting that checkbook out and buying your very own Idaho ski resort.
The Magic is Yours for $2.5 Million
Just imagine owning a permit for 339 acres of the Sawtooth National Forest with a 4000 square foot ski lodge, a rope tow, chair lift and a snow tube tow. All this could be had for just $2,500,000 and it's only about a half hours drive from Twin Falls, Idaho. After buying the Magic Mountain Ski Resort you just need to find 1000 of your closest friends and invite them up for a great day of skiing.
