BERLIN — The 79-year-old historic Nansen Ski Club jump is in rough shape. Luckily, a crew from the Student Conservation Association is working on giving it a bit of a makeover.
The ski jump was the site of the tallest steel tower jump east of the Mississippi and where the Olympic ski jump trials and Eastern State Championships took place. The last jump took place in 1982, according to the Nansen Ski Club's website.
The jump is named after the oldest ski club, the Nansen Ski Club. The club was created in 1875 and is still in existence. They act as a non-profit.
The envelop around the judging house will be cleared and that structure repaired and painted. They are also planning on making an observation deck that will allow visitors to get a feel for what it would have been like when they were about to jump off, Ben Wilson, Bureau of Historic Sites, told the Union Leader.
Many options are being discussed about how to fix up the jump and keep the historic site alive.
