ANCHORAGE, Alaska ó The embodiment of an Alaska cliche is for sale.
The massive urethane igloo thatís a must-stop for tourists heading for Denali National Park and Preserve can be had for $300,000.
The 80-foot high structure, erected more than four decades ago and never completed, sits on a 38-acre site, which is part of the sales package.
Owner Brad Fisher envisions the igloo turned into an eye-catching restaurant and hotel run on green power.
Hereís the catch: Creating a viable business could run a new owner at least a couple million bucks getting it ready and up to code.
Fisher, the owner since 1996, rented out four nearby cabins and ran a single gasoline dispenser at the site until 2005.
The property has been for sale off and on for six years.
