When I think of Double-Doubles, I usually think of Hall and now related companies.

When think of Single pole Doubles, I think of Riblet, Stadli, Mueller.

Can anyone think of a Double-Double with single pole chairs?


(I have too much time on my hands)

I think the double double at Jiminy was like that. The 180 beginner double and the Exhibition double that is. One kept going while the other stopped.

Wow! So am I!

(I think I picked the wrong day to stop smoking crack.)

I typed it twice, too. (They do have only a single pole
)

The original Blue chair at magic was a single pole. Which the black chairs now hang from (same towers) Very unique lift with a saftey bar and foot rest that swung in and out left to right.

The now black chair is very unique. It was the only chairlift built in North America by Pohlig. Pohlig (more commonly known as PHB) built many gondolas in North America, but only one chair. This was likely because they were bought by Hall for the purpose of getting into the gondola market.

I spoke with a lift inspector who said the lift was considered the cadilac of lifts in it's day. Many features that made it easy to service that are more common today.

I love the old pictures of it as a double. It's ashame it's had so many bizzare modifications to it over the years.

Mike: You'd probably know: Was the midstation for loading, unloading or both?
