the problem with that one is having a singles line for a double chair. if the only groups are doubles and quads breaking up in to 2s, then of course the singles would just pair up. stupid line is stupid. racer kids still suck.
Yeah, these sucky racer kids are doing exactly what the mountain wants in this instance. They want to pair up singles to prevent half-empty chairs from going up the line. Unless a single gets in the doubles line for some reason, they will have to take two people from the singles line to make a chair. I guess the risk to the sucky racer kids is that the liftie pulls one of them out to pair up with the single in front of them.
Not a bad system for the goal, I guess. I don't go out of my way to pair-up with someone on a doubles line when I'm skiing alone. This would be a good way to prevent me from wasting a seat. I guess the other way is to force people to pair up before they get in the line. I suspect that would be a much harder system to police. I can see someone getting bent out of shape when doubles abuse this type of line, however.
