Henniker, New Hampshire- Sunday was shaping up to be a great day at Pats Peak as the ski area saw the snow other New England mountains were receiving. However, mixed precipitation occurred overnight, leading to a power outage in the town of Henniker. This outage included Pats Peak, leading the mountain to announce that it would not open that day but was also closed for the season. Their original planned closing date was that Sunday, March 24th.

Their closing announcement post described the mild winter as “cruelty,” as the New Hampshire ski area dealt with rain and variable temperatures throughout the season.

Pats Peak has one of the strongest snowmaking systems in the Northeast, but struggled with warm weather throughout March. In the middle of the month, they reduced hours and ended snow tubing for the season because of the continued warmth. However, they didn’t give up and made snow multiple times in March. Pats Peak is a resilient ski area that will bounce back next winter.
