Nansen jumps in August 2022

The two hills for the Nansen Ski Jumps are looking green as the grass grows in after the hills were adjusted for today’s jumping. The new head of the N.H. Bureau Historic Sites, Matt Flanders visited the Nansen Ski Jump on Aug. 12 in Milan to view the work that has been done on the historic jump and the new 39-meter jump. The 39-meter jump last year hosted two competition and the Friends of the Big Nansen Jump are working with local schools to form a regional ski jumping program for local kids. (COURTESY PHOTO)
