The article discusses opportunities for real estate investment in ski resorts during the warm weather season. According to the author, the abundance of distressed assets brought about by the warm weather offers an opportunity to create full-service resorts. He adds that weather-related risk can be diversified by promoting year-round visits not related to skiing. Investments such as golf courses, spas, and wellness centers will allow companies to develop higher-priced vacation homes.
