Matt McFerran and his wife paid $149,000 for Soldier Mountain. McFerran, who has worked in the industry for years, says the chance to run his own ski facility is a dream come true.
“We’ve been working really hard during our due diligence period to finally execute some ideas and plans on this," says McFerran. "It has been an absolute whirlwind.”
He and his wife currently live in Bend, Ore., but will soon move to Idaho.
“The initial thought process was to split time. But after spending time around Fairfield and Soldier Mountain, we’ve decided to move out fulltime.”
