I hate Gondolas. (Rant)

Warning, Rant incoming -

Why is it that the ski world has an obsession with Gondolas? It seems to me, that at least here on the Beast Coast, all of the really, really popular mountains have gondolas. Killington, Jay, Cannon and Loon all have them, and are arguably some of the most popular mountains in the Northeast. Now obviously these mountains are popular due to their terrain, not their gondolas, but what is it that makes resorts think they are a good idea?
