Yep, its true, Alta has gone corporate. So you really don't want to ski there anymore. Don't even visit, you'll be too sickened by what you see. Now that the mineral basin link is in there is no way they'll be able to keep the snowboarders out. Best to stay away.
The new lift on sugarloaf seems to make sense, that can be a bit of a chokepoint getting over to Germania and so on anyway. Also, a lot of people seem to use it for skiing the few intermediate cruisers there, go figure.
I hadn't heard that they were going to move the triple to Supreme. ??? You really don't need more traffic up there. Again, p[erhaps they're thinking that they'll give better access to the intermediate cruisers and bump runs, and still be able to control the traffic somewhat, hmm.
Anyway, overall it sounds like it'll be a nice but small change for people, and as someone mentioned, I'm sure they'll take measures to slow things down when neccessary. We are talking about a resort that closes the lower gates until after the hikers have had a chance to get their full shots in, after all.
