I suck at pipe and they scare the shit out of me but here's my 2 pence anyway...
No, they won't, pipe is dieing. They take loads of time (and snow, depending on the mountain) to build and look after. If they aren't looked after, they get icey/slushy/rounded and horrible to ride. The vast majority of people (myself included) can barely get above the deck anyway.
From a resorts perspective, they are much better off spending the diesel and man-hours either grooming more runs or pushing conventional jumps and rails. Building a badass pipe serves a tiny minority of the mountain while consuming disproportionate amounts of resources.
