Besides Forest Service authorizations, the greatest challenge to such a proposal would be the intense winds that occurr on Vista, making such a tram unreliable. Still, some pretty interesting history. Here are a few pics of the old buggar and some links to several Portland and Mt. Hood historical sites.

Fuck ya, Bachelor is great but it does have a "mixed" atmosphere to it in that you have your mix of chill locals and asshole tourists that think their shit don't stink. But the terrain is awesome! And I'm with ya on Hoodoo, I have grown to dislike it. I learned there and every time I go there I tend to have bad luck I don't know why. The only really cool thing about that place is Crater Run from the summit on a pow day because it stays pretty un-tracked throughout the day. They are having a shitty season this year though, tons of rain.

And actually it's in Government Camp, OR if anyone is wondering. I live about 40 miles from there on the west side of the mountain. Good stuff.
Double hell yeah!
