A potential ski resort is up for sale. Here's the brochure.

What do you think? Could it be Moonshine Mtn? It may be a little far south for most readers but it's a nice looking mtn. Here's the topo.

Mr Murphy, Where is this Moonshine Mountain at? I thought I found it in Virginia, but can't find a website or any thing about it. Is it a nice place for me to take my wife and two daughters to learn to ski?

Thank you, woodie

Woodie,

Moonshine Mtn. is our dream mountain that Jimmy, Roger and other delusional participants on this board are going to build. It's probably not a good place to bring your kids .

But if I had a few million dollars it might be located on the boarder between VA and WV near Princeton....or maybe near Jefferson, NC....or somewhere in Alleghany county, VA. PM me if you would like to make a donation .

Phoenix is too low! And as a planner, I always get suspicious when they assure that there's "no zoning restrictions." Sure, the locals are just gonna shrug their shoulders when they see a 400 acre ski resort being built.

Is the 150 foot cliff a positive or negative? Where exactly is it? I'm not sure even Moonshine Mountain could handle a ski run with a mandatory 150 foot jump in the middle.

What we should really do is lead a geurilla expedition to Phoenix. While the developer is out gentlemanly showing other investors on the mountain, we could holler on up it in my truck and have a camp out and trash it- grain alcohol for drinking and lighter fluid for the bonfire or, heck, reverse it- after a liter or so of grain alcohol I'm not sure we'd notice the difference. If they try to stop us, we can just say "hey, we've got the bid in the bag- now git the hell off our land, bo-ah."

Now, I wouldn't try such a trick on the original Moonshine Mountain out near Princeton, as you're libel to get deliveranced with such an attitude (at best). But down in Ashe County, right above good ol' Jefferson- yeah, why not.

Looks like it's at the very top. Look at the topo, south of the NI in Phonenix and the MO of mountain.
