PLYMOUTH NOTCH SKI AREA

PLYMOUTH, Vt. - It opened as the Round Top ski area in March of 1965 with fourteen inches of fresh spring snow and big dreams for the little ski area near Killington, which had opened seven years earlier. 

The resort's past struggles include a purchase out of bankruptcy by a fugitive from justice and two attempts as a private ski resort under the names Bear Creek and the current one, Plymouth Notch.  

The resort shuttered after the ski season ending in 2018 and was put up for sale in the fall of that year for $7.5 million. 

Unofficial Networks reports that there "aren't many opportunities to own a well-maintained, abandoned ski resort, but there are some diamonds in the rough out there," including Plymouth Notch.

The resort owns two mountains and claims to have 150 skiable acres with 28 trails on Bear Mountain. The second peak, Salt Ash Mountain, is being marketed as adding 300 additional acres of possible skiing.  

For your $6.5 million, you will also get an 8,000 square foot lodge with a fully equipped bar and kitchen and a pond that can provide 100% snow-making coverage. 

Throw in the double chairlift and a permit allowing condos and timeshares, and the property is yours. One caveat. Unofficial Networks makes the following suggestion:

"Whoever purchases the mountain should be prepared to invest more than $6.5 million to make sure it doesn't enter foreclosure again."
