Would You Ski Jump Off New Hampshire's 'Sleeping Giant'?
Did you know that New Hampshire is the home to a very historic ski jump? The Nansen Ski Jump, just north of Berlin on Route 16 in Milan, NH was, at one time, the largest ski jump in the country! In fact, it's now a historic site and a state park. The jump is a doozy, with a 225-foot vertical drop. There's something about ski jumping that both thrills and scares the crap out of me. One minute I want to go. Then I watch one of the videos below and hide under my desk. I always wonder how you train to jump? I know you start with bumps, but at some point, you have to "jump into the deep end" as it were and just go for it.
