Some of those changes include a significant delay in winter temperatures, forcing winter recreation to start later, according to officials.
“I just think that is a terrible loss for us,” said Wake, adding outdoor recreational activities are being moved indoors.
“So it is definitely a vital industry for New Hampshire,” she said, adding the climate change is making businesses adapt for the future.
Six years ago, Cranmore was using 40 to 50 snow guns for its trails. Now, it is using 150 snow guns because of improved snowmaking technology.
“You are adjusting to the reality of what is to come,” responded Kuster.
According to Whitehouse, the impact of climate change is apparent even for V.F. Corporation, which owns popular companies like The North Face.
“It is a very big deal for Rhode Island,” said Whitehouse, noting large storms have created more ocean along the shores, heavy river flooding in the spring and tropical storms are happening later in the year that before.
