NH High School Ski Jumping Meet

Ten New Hampshire schools brought their ski jumping teams to Oak Hill to compete on the evening of January 28.  A glowing path of ice candles guided the spectators towards the jumps, where a good crowd gathered to cheer on the competitors.  Hanover High School won the competition with 388 points, and 4 jumpers in the top 10.  The event was well organized, and a lot of fun to watch! Thanks to Tihana Strnad for the photos and videos.
