Double Chairs

Maybe it’s the quality one-on-one time you get with your fellow passenger. Or maybe it’s the fact that six seater chairs just lack personality. Or maybe it’s because in many cases, a ski area’s best terrain is still accessed by a double chair (case in point: Snowbird’s Little Cloud lift, Stevens Pass’ Seventh Heaven chair). But there’s something I love about double chairlifts - especially center-bar double chairs like Crystal Mountain’s Chair 6 (above, in a photo I took yesterday) and Alpental’s Chair 2 (from opening day in December).
