Resort Development

Mountain and Ski Area


Clearview purchased the Angel Fire Ski and Golf Resort out of bankruptcy. The 22,500 acre development included a ski area, golf course and country club, hotel, lots, a utility company, property management company, fractional vacation ownership development and undeveloped land. Clearview performed a turn-around through an extensive management and redevelopment program. Capital improvements included 2 new high speed quad chair lifts, extensive snowmaking equipment, a new ski school building, and remodels of the Angel Fire Resort Hotel and golf course. The real estate developments are the economic drivers and have been very successful.

Clearview has also invested in parcels in and around Whitefish and Kalispell, Montana. The first investment in the area was "Highland Meadows", on a piece of land purchased from and previously timbered by Plum Creek, a publicly traded timber REIT.

According to locals, the property was almost worthless with the timber stripped. Clearview had the foresight to realize the timbering had actually opened up tremendous views of Glacier National Park and other pristine vistas. Clearview purchased the property, planned and developed a project with amenities far superior than local projects had ever experienced, and sold the project out at record prices.
