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.

Signs of the Times

Under pressure from insurers—and inspired by Disney—ski areas introduced colorful symbols to convey a trail’s difficulty. More than 40 years later, airports get in line.

Imagination is not the hallmark of most government agencies, so let’s give a cheer for the folks at the Transportation Security Administration. After successfully testing the idea at the Salt Lake City and Denver airports—the nation’s busiest travel hubs for skiers—the federal agency is using symbols similar to ski-trail signs to speed airline passengers through security lines. A green circle indicates the line for infrequent travelers—beginners—unfamiliar with protocol, such as not carrying bottled water through security.
