New Hampshire clears amendment to easement for Balsams

The Associated Press

DIXVILLE NOTCH — The redevelopment of the Balsams Resort in Dixville Notch has taken another step forward, thanks to the attorney general's office.

The Caledonian Record reports the decision was made Tuesday in the face of objections from some donors to the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests. The "no action" letter allows for the amending of conservation restrictions in four towns, mostly for the expansion of the Wilderness Ski Area.

The easement was created in 2012 after more than 1,500 Forest Society supporters donated $850,000 for the purchase of conservation restrictions on land around the Balsams.

The Balsams closed in 2010. Maine ski resort developer Les Otten's plan would renovate existing buildings and build a 400-room hotel, conference center, spa and retreat. It would also expand the ski area.
