Losing New Hampshire Winters

Jim Graham is a snow enthusiast, so much so that every year on his birthday, Nov. 1, he scales the 5,249-foot Mount Lafayette in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

“On good years, there's snow up there, and it reminds me of the old winters we used to enjoy here in New Hampshire,” Graham said.

Graham and his wife run a cross country ski program for youth in Concord, N.H. In 2012, participating kids were only able to work on snow once because of the less than optimal conditions. The rest of the time, the kids played games on bare grass fields.
