The ice just isn’t thick plenty of at the Alton Bay Seaplane Base ice runway to assist routine maintenance motor vehicles and aircraft, runway manager Paul LaRochelle told New Hampshire Community Radio.
No whole-scale cars should really cross the lake this time, and everyone snowmobiling should training caution, LaRochelle stated.
“It requires much more than a handful of cold nights,” LaRochelle stated. “It can take weeks for it to be a good thick secure ice.”
The seasonal runway on Lake Winnipesaukee is the only ice runway in the lessen 48 states accepted by the Federal Aviation Administration.
LaRochelle claimed he doesn’t feel the closures are indicative of a extended-term pattern. The runway was also closed in 2016 and 2011.
