dingusI put this thread in the NSG forum because its more of a business topic less skiing, just so ya know.
So anyways in my town there is a ton of those cold storages for apples, and I was thinking how great it would be to convert one of them into a ski area, I imagine it would not be too expensive to pull off. Snow makers, some rails, some solid workers, and maybe some better cooling systems would seem to be the only hefty expenses, and I feel the local mountain, ski shop and maybe the city could be in on helping sponsor it, (it would bring in a lot of revenue into my city). But I am kinda a dreamer, usually dream very unrealistically, like wanting to put a foam pit in my backyard, but I dig stuff like that, building shit for fun. So tell me NS how unrealistic is my dream? or could it be pulled off, anyone want to team up to build the fortune 500 company?
The local mountain would help sponsor it's competition? Maybe advertise there but I wouldn't bank on getting the majority of your funding from there. The local ski shop? They might be down to advertise, sponsor some comps, but the project?
I mean, I was going to build a foam pit in my yard, I built an 18 foot drop in, 2 full size mini ramps, and all kinds of other stuff but this is beyond unrealistic.
The problem isn't the idea, it's the unrealistic view of completing this goal. Same kind of thing pops up in threads about "Why won't my local mountain do this, it'd be so easy and cheap" about different things.
This would be a huge project. Anything is possible but you're massively overlooking the costs, the amount of work that would need to be put in, that it actually wouldn't be simple, etc.
Look how far xanadu in dirty jerz got? They actually had funding and had the place pretty much done and still couldn't finish it.
