    As much as I think double doubles are super cool lifts, if this was built in 2001, why didn’t they just go with a fixed grip quad?

      Ecause they probably only needed 2400 ppl on weekends and holidays. On week days they could get by with only running one of the lifts.

    Is this the newest double double?

      This is one of the newest, but not the newest. The double double from Ski Big Bear PA is 8 years newer, but was probably built on older Borvig towers.
