The company that owns the wind farm near the Balsams is open to reducing the buffer zone between its wind turbines and the slopes, a key to a developer’s plan to greatly expand the size of the ski resort.
"As long as it is safe, we have no problems," Brookfield Renewable Power lawyer Harold Pachios said late Monday.
Maine entrepreneur Les Otten would like to quadruple the size of the Balsams ski area and reopen the hotel.
But Otten’s plan to make the ski runs longer requires skiers to get closer to the tops of mountains where the wind farm has turbines.

With yet another storm bringing rain and snow and ice to New Hampshire, NHPR's Sean Hurley went into downtown Plymouth to see how folks there were holding up.
Standing out on Main Street in Plymouth, I heard variations on the theme of "Please oh please, will someone stop the snow from snowing." Except from the unusual Kayla Grimes clearing the sidewalk with her trusty shovel in front of Plymouth Ski and Sport where she works.
I love shoveling. Do you? Yeah! I don't ski or snowboard. You shovel. I shovel.
The annual town meeting at Hart's Location might be a small affair, but it usually attracts almost 80 per cent of its registered voters and this year was no different.

Before the town meeting begins, Moderator Les Shoof announces the unofficial results of the just completed town election.
