The state of New Hampshire has been experiencing one of the states warmest winters on record. According to WMUR, January 2023 was 8.9 degrees above the average January temperature in New Hampshire.
Due to the rise in temperature, there has been less snow, so some outdoor activities have been affected.
“We have seen a decline in the amount of snow we get in central to southern New Hampshire each year and that has negatively affected snowmobile participation, snowmobile registrations are tracking down this year compared to previous years,” said Major David Walsh of New Hampshire Fish and Game.
Pat’s Peak in Henniker has had few problems with the warmth due to their snow making system.
“We are lucky because we have a great snow making system, so we have been able to have 100% of our trails open since the middle of January,” said Lori Rowell the Director of Marketing and Sales at Pat’s Peak.
