House For Sale: New Ipswich, NH

At some point while sitting with Al and Irene on their deck overlooking that incredible view, we asked about the challenges a new owner would have to be willing to face.

“The hardest part of the job for me,” Al replied, “is waking up at 3:00 a.m. to find the rain-soaked snow firmly frozen, and realizing that it will take many hours of difficult grooming to make it skiable–but maybe the machinery won’t start and 400 skiers are expected within a few hours. For Irene, it would be finding enough workers among our family and friends to staff the various jobs that get us through another weekend.”

And the good parts? “Well,” Al continued, “our joys come from accepting the challenges, overcoming them, and seeing the happiness it brings to others. We live in a beautiful place in a special corner of the world, experiencing a life that’s close to nature. We feel very fortunate.”

One thing we can guarantee: When an e-mail goes out to the 3,000 people on Windblown’s customer list saying that Al and Irene have found someone–or some family, or families–to take over and carry on, there will be cheering and great joy throughout southern New England.

Now, how much is that worth?
