Rockstar Energy creator Russell Weiner pays record $39.6 million for Park City Ski Home

Billionaire Russell Weiner, the creator of Rockstar Energy Drink, has bought a $39.6 million home in Park City, Utah, according to Paul Benson of Engel & Völkers, who represented both Mr. Weiner and the seller, the developer Iluminus Group.

The deal sets a record for the most expensive home sale in the state, Benson said.

The newly built, fully furnished home at Park City Mountain Resort is about 17,500 square feet and has six bedrooms, according to David Ostrander, who founded Iluminus Group with his brother, Joe Ostrander. He was listed for $42million in December and was contracted to Mr. Weiner in April.

In a statement, Weiner called Utah “a pro-family, pro-business state” and said he expects it “to continue to attract people, even more that people are fleeing high-tax states”. He added, “Real estate values ​​will only continue to rise in Utah because of demand.”

Mr. Weiner, who started Rockstar in the early 2000s, is the son of Michael Weiner, best known as former conservative radio talk show host Michael Savage.

The ski-in ski-out property sits on approximately 5 acres in the Colony at White Pine Canyon development. House amenities include a bowling alley, indoor sports court and golf simulator. Each bedroom has its own terrace with a fire pit, and the library has goat parchment wall panels. A “wellness wing” includes an indoor-outdoor pool, hot tub, gym, sauna, and steam room, plus a massage room with a Himalayan salt wall. The home also has a wellness intelligence system that filters water and air and adjusts lighting to mimic the cycle of the sun, Benson said.

In the ski room, vintage skis decorate the ceiling, Mr. Ostrander said.

The house cost more than $30 million to build, Mr. Ostrander said. “We really wanted to do something a little different in the Park City market, on par with what can be done for a high-end, legacy quality ski home,” he said.

Prior to this sale, the most expensive home sold in Utah was a home that traded for $32.5 million in 2019, Benson said.
