US citizens can now invest in Red Mountain Resort’s “Fight the Man. Own The Mountain” crowdfunding campaign. In just two weeks, US Investors have already raised close to $400K.
In a ski-resort industry filled with record-breaking corporate mergers and acquisitions, Red Mountain, an independent, under-the-radar powder haven in Rossland, B.C., has become what they’re calling an “endangered species.” To preserve their spirit and individuality and keep focus on mountain lifestyle rather than base-area development and designer shopping, Red is tapping the skiing and snowboarding community, i.e. people like you, to “Fight the Man. Own the Mountain.” Using StartEngine.com for U.S. investors and Frontfundr.com for Canadian investors, Red Mountain launched the first crowd-funded, ski-resort-ownership campaign of its kind.
Investment buy-ins range from $1,000 to $10,000 and investors receive perks like lift tickets, custom-designed skis or snowboards, Grey Mountain clubhouse membership, lodging access to six on-mountain cabins and much more.
