    What is that chair model called? I think it’s the same model as the chairs on Mile 1 Express at Panorama.

      Not sure if it has a name, but it’s a style of chair commonly seen in Dopp detach quads built in the 1980s. Very common in Quebec, also on the 2 Doppelmayr detach quads built in Ontario, and the FourRunner express at Stowe. Not very common out west, although this model is also at Panorama.
