New developments include the Sky-Hook tram on Mt Hood, "a steel-tower cable contraption on which gasoline-propelled cars will run back and forth from Government Camp to Timberline.". Ski Acres, east of Snoqualmie Pass, is newly developed. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer will operate a free ski school for youngsters there. The University of Washington, headed by Buster Campbell, has cleared a 160-acre tract just east of Stevens Pass for a ski area. On December 2, the lodge at Milwaukee Road Ski Bowl burned down. This 200-foot building, which also served as railroad station, sat at the bottom of the giant Olympian jump hill. With the closure of Paradise Valley as a resort, the Park Service has permitted development of the Cayuse Pass-Tipsoo Lake area. Four tows in series, 3,000 feet long, taking skiers 1,000 vertical feet, have been installed by the Naches Company, headed by Don Adams and Webb Moffett.
