A house on 47 acres for $300k? Wow. Around here you'd be looking at at least a couple million.Almost worth buying and then renting out and save it for a retirement property. What's the house like?

Yep, was a neat trip and my first night in a snow cave, but we'd have got more skiing done if we'd just brought a tent. Took about 3 hours to dig the snow cave.
