Founded in 1947 by two friends watching nearby Olympic Team Tryouts, Soldier Mountain Ski Area has 1,150 acres of variable terrain including: a terrain park, glades, bowls and tree skiing. It also happens to be the only cat skiing operation (think backcountry, one step below heliskiing) in South-Central Idaho. In 2012, after over a decade of ownership, Bruce Willis (yes, that Bruce Willis) donated the entire mountain to a 501[c]3. Now the entire shebang (inventory, lifts, buildings, bar, vehicles, snow machines, the list goes on) is for sale. Since it’s a non-profit organization, the price is only the debt owed against the business which is–wait for it–a whopping $149,000. For less than the cost of most houses you can own an entire ski mountain. It’s perfect for the man looking for an escape, outdoor mancave, protection from zombies or just thinking about building a Bond lair.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
