We sure don’t hope he dropped out of the race because of this home. The Utah governor/ ambassador to China gets to ski in this $49.5 million Park City Utah ski compound when he hits the slopes. Huntsman’s father, businessman Jon Huntsman, Sr. is a billionaire and profoundly generous philanthropist who has given more than a billion dollars in donations over his lifetime.

He built this huge home in 1989 from Yellowstone reclaimed logs on a 60-acre bluff overlooking downtown Park City, one of my favorite ski areas where I will, in fact, be heading next month.

I imagine they ski at the Deer Valley Mountain Resort, which is just minutes away and the kind of place where they carry your skis at the end of the day. The home also has this amazing underground garage —no wait, TWO amazing underground garages — with parking for 26 cars between the two of them. Listed with Paul Benson at Summit/Sothebys for $49,5oo,000.
