Topic - Ski lift on Ben Nevis?

Chateauneuf du Boeuf - on 14 Feb 2013
With such fantastic skiable gullies and an enviably long season why doesn't someone stick a ski lift up the NF of the Ben and bring a bit of commerce to the area. Here are the advantages:

-Jobs for local people operating the lifts;

-Climbers could come down on the lifts so they don't clog up the good descents;

-Could get a nice bar at the bottom with patio heater on the terrace, pizzas, tartiflette, jupiler, la chouffe, leffe and all those nice euro brews;

-Above bar could provide jobs for locals and a room for people to stay who aren't old hairy Scottish men who like to spend their evenings bemoaning the passing Sassenachs and eating haggis/comparing beards;

-The lift could go over tower ridge and stop to pick up those out of their depth before they get benighted/call mountain rescue.

Any objections?
