# Question: Consider how Flint Valley a popular ski resort could use

Consider how Flint Valley, a popular ski resort could use capital budgeting to decide whether the \$8-million Snow Park Lodge expansion would be a good investment.
Flint Valley Expansion Data Set
Assume that Flint Valley’s managers developed the following estimates concerning the expansion (all numbers assumed):
Number of additional skiers per day.................................................. 125
Average number of days per year that weather
conditions allow skiing at Flint Valley................................................ 160
Useful life of expansion (in years)....................................................... 8
Average cash spent by each skier per day........................................... \$ 240
Average variable cost of serving each skier per day............................ \$ 140
Cost of expansion .............................................................................. \$ 8,000,000
Discount rate...................................................................................... 12%
Assume that Flint Valley uses the straight-line depreciation method and expects the lodge expansion to have a residual value of \$960,000 at the end of its eight-year life.
Requirements
