Can Balsams be Bigger than Killington?

Balsams Resort owner Les Otten has big plans for the ski area.
Former ski resort mogul Les Otten offers a peek at his latest project and his big plans for the Dixville Notch resort.

Les Otten is back in the ski business with grand plans for turning one of the last remaining gems of New Hampshire’s grand hotel era into a full-amenity base area village and what would be the Northeast’s largest ski area. In a recent interview, the former CEO of American Skiing Co. sketched out his plans for revitalization of the Balsams Resort in far-northern Dixville Notch, well-known as home of first-in-the-nation voting.

Stowe is For Skiers

Now it has some of the East’s most lavish slopeside amenities. But to those who know it best, it’s still the hill that has no peer.

There’s one Eastern ski resort that’s better than all the rest. It’s got the best terrain, most efficient lifts, highest peak, rippingest skiers, richest history, raddest lift-served sidecountry, rowdiest nightlife, prettiest views, and best-looking women.

Anyway, that’s what Stowe skiers will tell you.

A Safer World for ACLs?

Can Knee Bindings Help Prevent Knee Injuries?
Can Knee Bindings Help Prevent Knee Injuries?
Blown knees are the bane of skiers, but a small Vermont-based binding company claims to have solved the problem.

With a sickening, distinctly audible “pop,” your season is over. Ahead lie months of recovery, usually involving expensive surgery. Send for a toboggan, and join the club of skiers who have torn anterior cruciate ligaments.

The Extended Eastern Forecast? More Awesomeness.

Weather guy Mark Breen is loving this winter as much as the rest of us. And he sees more of the same in the longterm forecast. Sorry about that, Western resorts.

Mark Breen’s calm baritone is a familiar part of the soundtrack to life in Vermont, where his detailed daily forecasts air daily on Vermont Public Radio. He’s the senior meteorologist and planetarium director at the Fairbanks Museum in St. Johnsbury, where his Eye on the Sky weather forecasts are produced. Breen doesn’t spend a lot of time riding ski lifts, but says he likes to get out with friends on nordic skis or snowshoes. And he’s a big fan of winter.
