    Supreme: I think that it was a "poor man's express lift" that was upgraded right around the time that they did Sugarloaf and Collins. I will miss Cecret, but that lift was WAY underused. Supreme, IMHO, worked just fine. That said, it was a Frankenlift with multiple parts including Yan towers and terminals and I bet it was getting aged.
    I thought I read somewhere that the tram to Baldy was meant for avalanche work access and it was only a possibility that it would be open to the public?

A lot of places, especially bigger resorts, have a cheaper lodging option for 2 people or so on site. The non-condo options are the hotels which are rather expensive if you're trying to be frugal.
    Worse than pricing, which will always be expensive on-mountain so I get it, is the quality of the hotels and many condos. Some real Hot Tub Time Machine shit; frequently not clean and depressingly run down. Amplifying that is that Sugarloaf is pretty much the only game in town for nightlife so I feel a bit more screwed every time I go. But the skiing, ah the skiing.

    Yeah the condos are ancient. Compared to what is offered in VT these days... its completely different. I don't find it substantially worse than Attitash's options. Never stayed in a condo at SR.

    SL's nightlife is certainly not great and carabassett is hardly a town haha, but like you said, its all for the skiing.

    SR is no better but at least you have Bethel and Attitash obviously has North Conway which changes things.

    At SL you have really 2 evening choices - widowmaker or the Rack. Used to be the snowmobiler dive - strip joint Carabassett Inn but that is now gone replace with a bowling alley I think

    While it is limited, I'm actually a big fan of the night life that Sugarloaf does have. With everything on the shuttle or within walking distance, it's easy to party. Though, I'm typically only there for three nights. I could see getting bored if you were there for a week. It's also pretty quiet midweek compared to other destinations that have actual towns. Friday night and Saturday night I'll do the Rack one night and Widowmaker the next and I'm happy. Only complaint is the Widowmaker is chronically understaffed. Major waits for beers at that bar when it's busy.

    I usually end up at both places on the same night when the band at one or the other sucks
