You could spend thousands of dollars on a ski holiday at some lavish resort in British Columbia.

Or you could spend just under $2 million to buy your own.

Fiddlehead Mountain offers buyers that very opportunity in Ontario's Cottage Country.

The Huntsville property includes a ski chalet and hill with five separate runs, a T-bar, a warming hut, swimming pool and skating pond. And it can be yours for $1,590,000.

Once known as Steven's Hill, the ski hill at 75 Gryffin Lodge Road was overgrown and unused for 20 years when Francine Goulet and Rob Birch bought it in 1997, Muskokaregion.com reported.

Birch had learned to ski there, and together they started dreaming of owning their own hill. So they bought it themselves, restoring five runs and two backcountry paths to their former glory.

They also built the 2,460-square-foot chalet, which has, among other things, three bedrooms, a games room, a wine cellar and a hob tub.

The property initially hit the market in 2013 but it is still seeking a buyer.

A video of the listing hit YouTube last year, and it's even drawing attention from The Wall Street Journal.

For anyone with pockets deep enough to enjoy powder days all to yourself, here's your chance.
