The Canadian resort operator said it will, through an agreement with Squaw Valley Ski Corp., acquire and convert land currently used for parking into a pedestrian village with restaurants, shopping and nightclubs. The resort will have about 700 residential units and 110,000 square feet of commercial space, the company said.

Local homeowners and the Sierra Club have joined forces to fight a Squaw Valley Ski Corp. expansion project. They say the cutting of more than 1,800 trees in Shirley Canyon and Tram Bowl to make way for new ski lifts would destroy the valley's last remaining pristine area and damage its watershed. The Sierra Club has filed suit to block the tree-cutting and the Squaw Valley Homeowners Assn. supports the action. A Superior Court ruling, expected in about 60 days, could require a second environmental impact statement or could give the go-ahead for the cutting.

He was 92. Cushing, the chairman of Squaw Valley Ski Corp., died Saturday of pneumonia at his summer home in Newport, R.I., resort officials said.

For a long time, the answer was not much. At one point, Cushing's mountain manager called the ski lifts junk, and his employees acquired a reputation as the rudest individuals this side of New York's taxi drivers.
