A very fine example of Northland Co. Skis. They feature their original complete bindings, Hickory wood, a ridgetop design and are in perfect condition with signs of minimal use. Their labels are in excellent condition and have been preserved with our special blend of natural wood oil and beeswax. A second logo appears mid shaft on the skis which reads Monarch, the particular model of this ski. Whether you are looking to add to your antique ski collection or purchase a set for your home decor, you cannot go wrong choosing this pair.
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.
