Matt and Diane McFerran, the current owners of Idaho’s Soldier Mountain Ski Area, are selling the resort for a mere $800,000. The Fairfield, Idaho-based ski area was founded in the 1940s and has since become a favorite playground of locals, families and thrill-seeking cat-skiers.
The current owners have made improvements to the lodge, cat-skiing areas, and equipment. But in order to realize the property's full potential, the McFerrans say the mountain needs capital for further improvements like snow-making equipment for the main runs.
Listed on both Craigslist and Soldier Mountain’s website are the ski area’s amenities, including 1150 skiable acres, 36 trails, 1400 vertical drop, 2 chair lifts, 1 magic carpet, 2000 skiable cat-ski acres accessed by a 12-seat enclosed snowcat, and a yurt located in the cat-ski terrain. The base of the ski area is at 5750’, the top is 7200’ and the top of the cat-ski area is 9500’. Soldier has a 10-year-old lodge with a bar, restaurant, retail, rental, and tuning. There is a ski school, paid and volunteer ski patrol, a cat skiing operation, a yurt that sleeps 12.
If you’re in the market to invest, Soldier Mountain has it all.

Last year had Angel Collinson always on the move. To be one of the hardest-charging big mountain skiers in the industry takes tenacity, and she’s got no shortage of it. But after winning the prestigious 2018 Powder Reader’s Poll, landing a cover of Ski Journal, and filming one heavy-hitting segment after the next, Angel had a full heart but empty gas tank. It was time to recharge. Turning to her best source of medicine, skiing, Angel went back to where it all began, Snowbird Ski Resort.
