For sale: Roadside urethane Alaska igloo captured in countless photos by tourists is for sale

The embodiment of an Alaska cliche is for sale.

The massive urethane igloo that's 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.

Here's 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.
