American Skiing Company magnate wants to lead Maine

One of ski country's biggest cheeses has decided to run for public office. Les Otten, the present or former owner of Sugarbush and Mount Snow ski resorts in Vermont and Cranmore and Attitash in New Hampshire -- and the onetime big poppa of American Skiing Company -- is running for governor in the state of Maine. According to the Vermont Times Argus, Otten announced his intentions last Monday, saying he wanted to become the beleaguered state's "job creator in chief". We don't care what political party they're from, fellow skiers running for office will always get our endorsement -- at least on those planks of their platform that concern getting more folks on snow. Go Big O!
