“There is no better way to close out 2019 than with a state-wide powder day,” says Shannon Dunfey-Ball, Ski New Hampshire’s marketing and communications manager. “Due to the hard work of our snowmakers up to this point in the season creating that ever-important snow surface base, things are shaping up for a strong January at NH ski areas and a great beginning to 2020.”
