    While New Hampshire continues to feel the effects of drought-like weather conditions, the state's ski resorts are making moves to ensure that they'll be in good position come winter.

    Pats Peak general manager Kris Blomback tells The Nashua Telegraph that many ski areas have significant reservoir capacity in snowmaking systems to combat mother nature.

    Blomback says resorts would've had a tougher time with this current drought if the snowmaking industry had not been modernized roughly 20 years ago.

    Pats Peak will pump an average of 60 million gallons of water a year for its snowmaking operation.

    Danbury's Ragged Mountain began work in September to increase water storage from 4 million gallons to 24 million.

    Cannon Mountain officials say the Franconia resort has no water concerns at this time.
