Deer Valley Lodge, a ski resort in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, has plans to eventually add five new chair lifts. Suppose that one lift costs \$2 million, and preparing the slope and installing the lift costs another \$1.3 million. The lift will allow 300 additional skiers on the slopes, but there are only 40 days a year when the extra capacity will be needed, (Assume that Deer park will sell all 300 lift tickets on those 40 days.) Running that new lift will cost \$500 a day for the entire 200 days the lodge is open. Assume that the lift tickets at Deer Valley cost \$55 a day and the added cash expenses for each skier-day are \$5. The new lift has an economic life of 20 year.
