Timo Denisson of St. Paul, Minn., uses a stick to help him push himself forward on 8-foot long ski jumping skis while dragging a discarded Christmas tree found in the woods while preparing the K50 jump at Storrs Hill Ski Area in Lebanon yesterday for the National Masters Age Group Ski Jumping Championships today. Denisson, who has been ski jumping for 63 years, planned to sprinkle the tree’s needles over the hill so ski jumpers would be better able to judge their landings. (Valley News - Sarah Priestap)
