Another wonderful set of antique skis. They feature the pointed tips (nipple tips) that were originally thought to cut and therefore track through snow with more efficiency. They also have very decorative diamond tread boot pads, original labels, leather bindings and a unique alligator patina that only comes with time.
Northland Ski Manufacturing Company was founded as the C. A. Lund
Company in Hastings, Minnesota by Norwegian-born Christian A. Lund back
in 1911. Skis, Poles, Boots, Bindings, Toboggans, and Snowshoes were
manufactured at Hastings, Minnesota, St. Paul and in Laconia, New
Hampshire. By the mid 1920’s and on into the 1930s, Northland was the
nation’s largest producer of Winter Sporting equipment.
