Matterhorn Grand Piano factory

  [vote for,

It struck me that it would be possible to place a grand piano on the very top of the Matterhorn.

Anyway, prospective piano buyers could travel to the factory, by cable car. One car (descending) would be for a piano making its way to the delivery truck, the other car would be for the visitors (ascending) to the factory, and the small museum of grand pianos of the ages.

Visitors would enjoy avoiding the 4,478 metres (14,692 ft) trudge up or the problem of finding out exactly how well a grand piano acts as a luge.

It would seem a good idea to have a variety of finished product on hand as they weigh 500 to 1200 lbs and obviously a skinny visitor should be matched to the 500 lb weight etc

In a complete aside, oddly enough I believe the Borg have been up to some sneaky militarism, on the "Add an idea" page there are no less than 32 mentions of "trebuchet".

       Very Salvador Dali. Eerie Doppler music, for the rising patrons, if the strung back isn't contained by any walls.

       Do you mean to tell me that there is not already a grand piano at the top of the Matterhorn? How on earth do mountaineers relax over their afternoon tea after the climb??

       They form an impromptu string quartet. A poor substitute for Palm Court, but technically they are "roughing it" …   

       We are not responsible for all those trebuchet ideas BTW. Most, but not all.

       Well, if you have to make your own entertainment, I shall cross the Matterhorn off my list for this year.

       And here I always thought there were yodeling goat- herders there. Not piano-playing yodeling goat- herders.

       Once you'd balanced a grand on one side, so's to fit it on the ledge, could you still play it with your mittens on?
