What to do with a ski slope in the summer?

When I was a wee lad, there was an amusement park called Action Park in NJ. They took a ski slope, and buy big, long, open tubular slides that you ride a bobsled with wheels in. It was the first ride attraction you come upon when entering.

A place like Mont Tremblant will have different activities during the summer but I dont think they use the ski slope.

You cannot zipline down it, too fast, and cant stop, means accident.

Mountain biking! We went to Kicking Horse Mountain years ago and my son got a Tshirt that said "After the snow, there's dirt!"

All the way up a ski slope? Thats does not sound like much fun. Or unless you course the path is spiraling around the mountain. That could work I guess.

I preferred my youth, when we grazed cows and sheep on adjacent ski slopes. (Colorado and WY)

Not much revenue...

Nearby (Oregon) they have an alpine slide / summer luge course + Mtn bikes / gondola rides

Alpine slide, mountain biking, hang gliding and paragliding.

Alpine slide requires a fairly substantial investment, but the others can be added with virtually no additional infrastructure cost.

Action Park (now called Mountain Creek) operates the slopes as a bike park during the summer.

Well, they have changed things around. Do they still have bungee jumping?

not too long ago some friends were talking about action park. i remember the commercials but i never went there. they said that there were a bunch of attractions that would definitely not be considered safe by today's standards.
