Wait--Heavens Gate is not running?!
Didn't something like this happen at Magic last year? Maybe Win should pay a little more attention to mountain infrastructure instead of worrying about condo's & what's beiing served at Timbers tonight.Wow. Just wow. On a holiday week nonetheless.

Of the major resorts I have skied in all of New England, Sugarbush's lift infrastructure is by far the most outdated. I love SB, the terrain is very unique and you can ski 2 different mountains. But there has to be some money invested into the infrastructure.
One guy said, "it's sad when the ski museum is asking to put Heavens Gate in the museum." Gotta agree.
I don't agree with this at all. Sugarbush's lift infrastructure is actually quite good in my opinion. They do have 5 HSQ's. The only areas I can think of with more high speed lifts is Killington & Sunday River.
I wasn't comparing the umber of highspeed lifts that they have. I was stating that everything they have is really old. Valleyhouse, Village Double, Heaven's Gate, are pretty old. That doesn't mean they don't work, but if they are often having issue, which they seem to, then it's time to upgrade.
