Mr Blixseth, ranked number 322 in the 2006 Forbes 400 list, is building a 53,000ft2 stone and wood mansion at the Yellowstone Club, a members-only, residential ski and golf resort near Bozeman, Montana.

The 10-bedroom mansion will sit on 160 acres and will come with a private gondala-like chairlift that will carry residents to the club’s private ski-slopes.

Mr Blixeth said he had already received interest in the home.
