Who needs the Alps and the crowds when you have the Rocky Mountains and the exclusive Yellowstone Club? Just making your way to the Rockies is not enough if you are a billionaire, a millionaire or a Hollywood star. Yellowstone Club is the place to go, if you want to enjoy skiing in private, away from prying eyes of paparazzi and the gawkers. This is also the world’s only private ski and golf community with its own mountains.
There is a catch, to ski there you have to join the private club by ponying up a bit – in millions. To use facilities at the 2,200-acre luxury ski resort you have to own property within the property. The condos and mansions command between $2.5 million and $25 million. Additional costs include $300,000 initial fee and a $37,500 annual fee. To keep the place as exclusive as possible they have capped the membership to 864 households.
In most ways, Yellowstone Club is America’s version of St. Moritz. Only the ultra-rich can use pristine powder here. Some of the bold-named members of the club include Bill and Melinda Gates, Google’s Eric Schmidt, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel and NBC Universal CEO Steve Burke. Predictably this is also happened to be a favorite place for wolves of Wall Street.
There is something for everybody. Novice skiers can test their skills on beginner runs. Kids get to have fun tubing and start learning skiing and snowboarding via Li’l Rippers Ski Program. The resort is created with a focus on family.
