Thanks, well the base village (set in the meadow) is set to begin construction shorlty so that's a definite. I never heard anything about Tim Blixith (sp) who owns Yellowstone suing but I know he tried to by the Boyne family out last year but Boyne wouldn't sell. The general attitude of business owners and such that we spoke with wished Boyne would get out because they have not done a good job at creating a intra-west, ala Wistler, Beaver Creek, Tremblant style mountain base village that is sorely missing. It appears that Moonlight is making better strides at this. They built an incredible mountian lodge that rivals anything at Vail or Beavercreek. They are also building a world-class golf course at the Basin as well. I think Boyne realizes that they missed the ball on the mountain. Moonlight does have a ton of premium ski-in/out townhomes and cabins but moonlights price tag is high. The cheapest townhome in Moonlight is about $420,000 and that's not even ski-in/out. The vast majority of propoerties are in the 800K-1.5 Million range now. Their properties values have appreciated signifiantly. We are looking to buy now, take the apprecaition and then hopefully move out there in 3-5 years. I live in a rural area of NJ, mostly farms and a lot of state parks and such but I love the mountains and the attitude of the folks in that part of the country. There are a lot of folks out there who moved from Colorado and Utah ski resort areas. Access really isn't so bad. You can be at Big Sky/Moonlight in 45-1 hour from the airport. You take 191 south Out of Bozeman. The road is flat the entire way and they keep it open and clean. It's the only highway from Bozeman going to West Yellowstone and down to Jackson. There is huge potential for this resort, once they get someone who knows how to get the mountain organized and more like the other sucessful resorts. The terrain is there, it just needs that base village and to stop the fighting, it hurts everyone.
