We plan to build Ormes utilizing a mix of private investor funding and bank loans.  Our goal is to sell 40% of Ormes to raise $30M towards the initial construction.  We plan to sell 400 shares each worth 0.1% of the company at $75,000.  Conservative ROI estimates are 16%.  While we wait for out Master Plan and Operating Permit with the Forest Service to be approved we are not soliciting investors.  But, if you are interested in becoming an investor, contact us at to join our potential investors list and not miss out.  In the mean time help us Crowd Fund Ormes Peak!
