The Dutch Have Some Good Ideas, Some Not So Good

Unfortunately, I am having a hard time deciding if if this idea is good or bad.  Maybe you can help?  Because of the lack of nearby mountains  outfitted for good skiing , the Dutch have decided to build their own.   According to the Business Insider;

The mountain, tentatively called Die Berg Komt Er, or The Mountain Comes, could take thirty years to complete and is projected to cost between $72 billion and $432 billion dollars (yes, you read those figures correctly).

Investors are already being sought for the project, and Dutch skiing, climbing, and cycling associations have signed on, according to BD.

If things go according to plan, the peak will be twice the height of Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, which rises 3,560 feet above sea level.

As you can see from the photo, a design has already been submitted, so the question remains.  Is the 30 year and ridiculously inaccurate estimate worth the Dutch giving a go?
