MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - A ski industry group is warning ski areas around New Hampshire to keep an eye on their copper.

The warning from Ski New Hampshire comes after $6,000 worth of copper cable was stolen from McIntyre Ski Area in Manchester. WMUR-TV (https://bit.ly/2t0j3h ) Preports that surveillance video taken Monday afternoon shows two men walking toward snow-making machines and then leaving with 225 pounds of copper cable. The metal is valuable when sold as scrap, and thieves pulled off a similar theft several years ago.

Operations manager James Nelson says it’s disheartening to work hard to maintain the equipment through the summer and then have valuable parts stolen.
