Balsams developer Les Otten has been known as a man with a vision since graduating from Ithaca College in 1971 with a degree in business administration.
After college, Otten went to work in lift maintenance at Killington, and at age 23, the Teaneck, N.J., native was sent by Killington’s owner, Preston Leete Smith, to work at his newest asset, Sunday River in Newry, Maine.
At the time, Sunday River had a string of surface lifts and was a small operation that drew 30,000 visitors a year.
