I used to ride at Alpine all the time before I moved out west. The reason for the high speed lift is the ridiculous lines to get ride the lift up the mountain. Ton of Chi-town people come here on the weekends. You spend 15-20 minutes waiting in line and then spend thirty seconds riding down the mountain. Even worse, about three years ago at Chestnut Mt. on opening day there were 30-45 minute waits at the bottom of the only lift that was open. I only rode down twice before I said f*ck it, and went home.
