This is a newsreel I found on Mount Hood. It is from 1956 and features the Mount Hood Skiway which at the time was the worlds longest tram. It was built from old city buses and used a cable system that was developed by timber loggers in Oregon that ran from Government Camp to Timberline Lodge. The Tram opened on February 3rd, 1951 but only lasted a few seasons as it turned into a financial disaster. In 1961 the cable system and tramway was permanently removed from the slopes of Mount Hood. Enjoy!
