About Jock Hautala
The Ridge at Blackjack is owned by two brothers, Todd and Rob and their families. We enjoy the area very much and decided to purchase property together after Rob and Kristen visited and loved the area.
Jock Hautala purchased this condo in 2007
Why Jock Hautala chose Big Powderhorn
We loved the ski-in/ski-out location and Blackjack is our favorite ski area. The snowmobiling is also wonderful and easily accessible. Rob and Kristen had recently been to Colorado for a very expensive ski vacation, and couldn't believe how reasonable this area was and better snow conditions than when they were in Colorado.
What makes this condo unique
The Ridge has a wonderful, large hottub in the building which everybody loves. You can ski-in and ski-out of the building, which is wonderful when you have kids and a large group of people, some of who may not ski. Everybody can be on their own schedule. And Blackjack has a wonderful apres ski bar, best in the area, so it's fun to hang out there after skiing.
