Team USA ski jumper, Sarah Hendrickson, soared above the White Mountains to celebrate the awakening of the ‘Sleeping Giant’, a nickname for the Nansen Ski Jump located in Milan, New Hampshire. Constructed in 1936 and home to the very first U.S. Olympic trials, the Nansen Ski Jump has not seen flight in 32 years. To pay tribute to the historical site, New Hampshire State Parks and the Friends of Nansen have recently restored the jump to make it functional for one final flight. Adding to Sarah’s accolades, the first woman to ever jump in a ski jumping event at the Olympics is now the last to jump the Sleeping Giant.
