Skiing isn't probably on your mind this somewhat sunny Memorial Day weekend.
But if you are a skier who frequents the Poconos, you have probably heard of Alpine Mountain Ski & Ride Center located south-east of Scranton. For 40 years, the resort was open for business until last fall, when the the 97-acre property with 21 ski trails, including three greens, 12 blues, and six diamonds, went on the market, LehighValleyLive reported. Warm weather was a factor.
On Monday the mountain was sold for the bargain price of $412,500 to a Monroe County couple, who are still toying with ideas for what they will do with the property.
