Harald was a long-time member and past President of Leavenworth Winter Sports Club. He helped the Club during the development phases of building the cross-country trails here in our town. Along with a group of many hard-working members, he was a big part of bringing back Nordic Ski Jumping to the Ski Hill. He and members like Kjell Bakke, Liv Nurman, Wally Aunan, Bob and Rob Johnson, Bob Smith, and many others helped develop our robust youth Nordic Ski Team. He also helped guide the development of the jumping hill behind the Lodge. His passion for Nordic and Alpine skiing was felt through his enthusiasm for striving to make our ski community better, build a strong youth Nordic Ski Team, and to attract more visitors as the years went on.
