brucewillisDid anyone else know the Bruce Willis owns a small ski resort?

Well, it’s for day-skiing only, but the actor owns a day lodge and apparently the rights to skiing on Solider Mountain in central Idaho. Earlier this year, an accidental fire destroyed the lodge and now Willis is getting ready to start rebuilding. We’re happy to report that he’s integrating some nice passive solar designs into the new construction. From the article,

“Like the old lodge, a Fairfield landmark, the new one will have a grill and kitchen area, dining area, and lounge. Unlike the old, the new building will feature restrooms, as well as a ski rental shop, ski school and ticket booth, which were previously in separate structures. Outdoor restrooms for skiers will remain. The lodge will have a Western design, with large windows facing the ski hill to maximize solar gain and views. The deck is planned to be pavers rather than wooden planks, which will improve traction for those walking in ski boots and be easier to maintain.”

And well….that’s all I’ve got. But now you know something new about Bruce Willis. Just to add to the trivia, according to Wikipedia, the 54-year-old was once a private investigator (among other jobs) before becoming an actor. You’re welcome.
