    Adventure Ski and Snowboard School FOR SALE

    This is your chance to own a ski and snowboard school!

    Make $75-100,000 working 6 months a year teaching skiing & snowboarding near the beach in Encinitas, California.

    Since 1977, for over 40 years since I was 23 years old, my SnowSports Simulator business has allowed me to purchase (and in 7 years will pay off) a nearly million dollar home three minutes from Moonlght Beach in Encinitas CA, raise and support a family, ski most of April and then travel the world for 2 to 3 months most summers, invest in real estate and stock markets and accumulate a sizable retirement account, and from October thru March help people from all over the world learn, improve, and get in shape for snow sports that I love.

    I’m looking for someone that sees this opportunity to take my business over. You could double the income stated above if you have half the energy and enthusiasm I did in my early years I ran the school. You’re buying a 40+ year established business and a great lifestyle of working for 6 months and traveling or working elsewhere for six months of the year.

    At 60 something years old, the time is near for me to pass the torch. I am not in a rush as I still love what I do, but I’d like to do it with/for someone else while I still can to help them learn the ropes.

    I will work with and train the new owner to be able to be successful at continuing the legacy I established over 40 years ago and want to see continue for at least the next 40 years…

    Price for turnkey established business is $400k. Serious inquiries only please. For the qualified right person I might be willing to accept a sizable down payment and carry the balance of the loan with terms TBD.
