Could also reduce number of chairs to limit downhill capacity from a summit HSQ
For whatever psychological reason, most modern skiers are fine with a 14 minute lift line for a 6 minute ride vs a 6 minute lift line for a 14 minute ride.

I've probably mentioned this before, but the Flying Bear only runs at ~1800 skiers per hour capacity at full speed. That's roughly top design capacity for a triple. The same could easily be done on the Attitash side. I've definitely mentioned that the capacity of the triple and top notch double (both work horses pre Flying Yankee; people did use the mid station on the double though) roughly approximate the capacity of a high speed quad.
Vail could probably run a HSQ at full capacity to the summit if they cut a green boulevard from Saco back into Ammonoosuc.
