It is summer on Big Mountain; it is hot and dry. The ski runs have turned brown, and the wide swathes of brown wiggle down the mountain meeting at the base station, which is a short walk from the Kandahar Lodge where I am spending the night.
The lodge is part of the Whitefish Ski Resort and has been the site of ski championships. Lately, however, the ski resort has been the focus of a financial controversy involving reverse stock splits that seem to favor a few influential developers.
Our room at the lodge is for sale, two queen sized beds and a small sitting area sells for about $120,000 with no monthly fees. Tempting, but I think I’ll pass. Great place to stay, however, and the dining room features Elk Roulade and Buffalo Tenderloin.
