Another wonderful set of antique skis.  These pine Northland skis were an "entry level" ski - featuring flat plank style boards, the 1930s shaped tips and bear trap cable bindings.  Decorator-wise - these are more "expert level" with the red pin-striping. They also have very decorative diamond tread boot pads, original labels, leather bindings and a beautiful 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 in 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.
