Earlier this decade, the officials at Mt. Baker devised a plan to make every one of their eight lifts a four-seater.

The idea finally has come to fruition with the replacement of the heretofore Chair 1 double with a fix-gripped quad.

The new Doppelmayr lift won't open up any new terrain, but it will nearly double the uphill capacity, from 700 riders an hour to 1,200. This is Baker's most popular conveyance to the resort's advanced playground.
