They tried mountain biking a few years ago. I think it cost them more in repairs (to the mountain) than they brought in from the bikers. IF they would add the Alpine Slide, they might have a chance to make money, especially if you combined biking AND the slide.
At Hood, they do that and much more and it is successful. It doesn't bring in a ton of cash, but it helps maintain the employee base and it keeps people coming back to the mountain. I-90 has SO much through-traffic that is it hard for me to imagine NOT making money if you have enough fun thing to do so that people will go and also reccomend it to their friends.
