Go tell it on the mountain

How much surface area would it take to create the tallest mountain manually?  I think this would be a good task for some place in Colorado, since they’re already so elevated.  You could build this mountain and design it to have a wide road that wraps around it, and depending how long it turns out to be, you could have marathons, sky gliding, street luge competitions, or even some crazy sort of triathalon where you run to it, bike up it, and repel down it.  You could create tourist pull overs and places to eat and check out the view.  We’re totally covering some dangerous ground close to the Tower of Babel, but we’ve go the technology and big trucks these days!  We could have it done in a matter of weeks!  Heck, while we’re at it, we might even end up creating the deepest hole just by digging out the dirt needed!  BONUS!
