Los Angeles - Bruce Willis wants to donate his Idaho ski resort to charity.

The 57-year-old Die Hard star - who became a father for the fourth time when wife Emma Heming gave birth to daughter Mabel on Sunday - is willing to give the Soldier Mountain ski area in Fairfield to the right non-profit organisation.

Bruce bought the facility in the 1990s when he moved into the region with ex-wife Demi Moore - but has already put his home in nearby Hailey on the market for £9.5million, along with his local bar and nightclub, The Mint, which is listed at £2.5m.

'Ducks in a row'

According to the Idaho Mountain Express, the local Soldier Mountain Recreation Association is keen to take the actor up on his offer.

John Palan, member and Soldier Mountain employee, said: "If we can get our ducks in a row, seek sponsors and new members, we would like to transfer the Forest Service permit and continue operations," although he added the area has been operating at a loss for several years.

The family-friendly area boasts 1 150 acres of in-bounds terrain, three lifts and a vertical rise of 1 425 feet.
