CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The head of New Hampshire’s Snowmobile Association has been honored for contributing to trail and program development.

Gail Hanson has been inducted into the International Snowmobile Hall of Fame, which is in Eagle River, Wisconsin. She’s been recognized for her contributions to promoting the growth of snowmobiling in the state.

As executive director of the New Hampshire association, she has helped change state law to give a registration discount to riders if they were members of a local snowmobile club, increasing membership rates.

New Hampshire’s snowmobile community has had an economic impact of more than half a billion dollars annually, representing 3 percent of New Hampshire’s gross product. The state has over 7,000 miles of trails. Founded in 1969, the New Hampshire Snowmobile Association is made up of 110 nonprofit snowmobile clubs working together as a unified voice at the local, regional, state, and federal level to promote snowmobiling.

The international Hall of Fame has honored more than 80 trail developers, journalists, promoters, legislators, club founders and others.
