FAIRFIELD -- Hollywood actor Bruce Willis is handing over the keys to a small Idaho ski area to a nonprofit group.

Willis, who starred in TV's Moonlighting and the Die Hard movie franchise, has owned Soldier Mountain Ski Area near Fairfield, in the mountains between Boise and Sun Valley.

But he's been trying to exit the operation -- and sell his home and a bar in nearby Hailey.

Now, five people have formed a nonprofit that's assuming ownership of Soldier Mountain, a three-lift, 867-vertical-foot resort.

A town hall meeting is scheduled Thursday to formalize the handover between Willis and the group, Soldier Mountain Ski Area, Inc.

The names of the five people behind the nonprofit haven't been released, but a public relations firm that's touting the change-of-hands says some live in Fairfield.
