A gem in the Hill Country's lush landscape, Austin is already known as a summer and springtime destination. But the balmy city could soon become a winter vacationer's paradise with indoor ski resort firm Alpine-X looking to expand to Austin.
The company will open its doors in its hometown in Virginia but has signed a letter of intent to build resorts in Austin and Dallas by 2025.

If all goes to plan, the company will bring the Rockies to Austin with a full resort complete with an indoor snow area, skiing and snowboarding routes and skiing lessons by 2025. The location, which hasn't been decided, will be created with an unnamed developer and be surrounded with hotels, multiple restaurants and more.
The company is one of the first of its kind in the U.S. and plans to open 20-plus locations with a focus on U.S. metropolitan areas in the future.

It's not on the level of LeBron signing with the Spurs, but who knows, maybe you'll see him at Guero's one day, having a Rob's Especial marg and a No. 1 dinner?
LeBron James, Draymond Green, Kevin Love, LeBron's business partner Maverick Carter, and a bunch of other sports-related investors are buying a Major League Pickleball expansion franchise.
Oddly, MLP teams aren't associated with places, so at this point it's just "an expansion team."
But Major League Pickelball is based in Austin, created, according to the Austin Business Journal, by Dreamland and Richard's Rainwater owner Steve Kuhn.
League investors include familiar Austin names like C3 Presents founders Charles Attal and Charlie Walker, Parsley Energy founder and partial Austin FC owner Brian Sheffield, Silicon Labs Chairman Nav Sooch, and pickleball enthusiast Brené Brown.
