    Hear the recorded voice of Paul LaRochelle. He's the volunteer "Airport Manager" of the Alton Bay Ice Runway.
    The temperature here in New England is generally above freezing.
    Looks the same or warmer for the next few days.
    You can guess what all this means to the "BAC Ice Runway Fly-In" scheduled for February 8, 2020.
    Stay tuned.

    A good substitute is the fly-in Robert Staab has scheduled for KPOU in New York State for February 22, 2020.
    Check the event calendar.

    THE OFFICIAL WORD!

    The ice at Alton Bay, New Hampshire is not thick enough to support aircraft at this time. Because of anticipated further warm weather the ice runway will not be opened this year. Call 603 875-3498 and hear the sad news yourself.

    As an alternative and in the spirit of the BAC Northeast Region's signature event... feel free to put some ice in a glass along with your favorite beverage and toast to ice runways of years past.
