BERLIN — The Friends of the Nansen Ski Jump and Director Ben Wilson of the state Bureau of Historic Sites have set an ambitious goal: to raise approximately $300,000 to bring the local historic ski jump up to today's safety and other standards so that world-class Fédération Internationale de Ski competition can begin in 2018-2019.
