Runway is marked with yellow cones every 300' on both sides with triple cones on both ends marking thresholds . Taxi way is on east side of runway marked with orange cones into parking ramp on south end. If you have ice cleats for your shoes I suggest you bring them.

Just got word that the ice is thick enough at Alton Bay, NH (B18) but will not open the runway until next week after the storm coming through on Sunday. A recorded message is on 603 875 3498 for runway conditions.
