A Sportsman's Paradise located in a college town! This is an amazing opportunity to bring back to life an old "Lost Ski Area" that opened in 1962! Formerly known as Birdseye Mountain Ski Resort with over 600+ acres located on three connected properties featuring a 1324' vertical drop offering unlimited potential from skiing to a huge campground. Only minutes to three major ski area, Castleton University, Lake Bomoseen & Lake St. Catherine, major highway of Route 4, and just 20 minutes to Rutland, Amtrack and CapeAir. This property is surrounded by thousands of acres of State Forest property- never to be developed for complete privacy and a hunters paradise. The mountain range offers views of the northern end of the Taconics. The north face starts off gradually near the base and rises dramatically near the summit. Castleton river runs through the property with a pond that served the west facing slope which used to offer night skiing as well as day skiing. ATV trails and VAST trail close by. A camping area was built in the 1970's with an in-ground swimming pool which is no longer in use. Huge development opportunity with some creative ideas are unlimited. "An exciting opportunity to own your own Mountain in the heart of Vermont's most famous ski country and develop a "Vermont Mountain Park"
