Bruce Willis hands over Soldier Mountain ski area to non-profit group

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: FAIRFIELD, Idaho (AP) ― Hollywood actor Bruce Willis is handing over the keys to a small Idaho ski area to a nonprofit group. Willis, who starred in TV's “Moonlighting” and the “Die Hard” movie franchise, has owned Soldier Mountain Ski Area near Fairfield, in the mountains between Boise and Sun Valley. But he's been trying to exit the operation ― and sell his home and a bar in nearby Hailey. Now, five people have formed a nonprofit that's assuming ownership of Soldier Mountain, a three-lift, 867-vertical-foot resort. A town hall meeting is scheduled Thursday to formalize the handover between Willis and the group, Soldier Mountain Ski Area, Inc. The names of the five people behind the nonprofit haven't been released, but a public relations firm that's touting the change-of-hands says some live in Fairfield.

Bruce Willis puts Idaho home on market for $15 million

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: HAILEY, Idaho (AP) — “Die Hard” movie star Bruce Willis is asking $15 million for his Idaho home complete with a guesthouse, gym and pool with water slides. The Idaho Mountain Express ( ) reports Willis' property in Hailey's Flying Heart subdivision is up for sale because he hasn't been able to spend much time in the area. This is just part of Willis' plans to pare his ties to the region. He's also trying to unload The Mint bar and nightclub on Hailey's Main Street after dropping the price to $4.5 million, from $6 million when it went on the market last year. Willis and former wife, Demi Moore, became part of the celebrity scene in the Sun Valley area during the 1990s. Willis still owns a ski area, Soldier Mountain, west of Hailey.
