A great photo showing the end of the 42 mile round trip Nordic ski race held at Crater Lake in Oregon c. 1929.  The winning skier shown is Emil Nordeen a Swedish outdoorsman from Bend Oregon.  The race started in the South Central Cascade mountains as the Crater Lake Wilderness Race in 1927.  In 1929 it was called the Klamath Cup Race, which Emil Nordeen won in 5 hours and 57 minutes.  He was 43 years old and was the oldest participant a the time.  Next time you're up doing a 10 mile cross country or skate ski trek imagine you have 32 more miles to go, breaking trail the entire way with skis 9 feet long weighing 15 pounds each!  A great print available in a variety of finishes.

Our standard print is on Kodak Endura Professional photo paper with a fine grain pebble texture.  Kodak Endura uses state-of-the-art image stability and lasts 100+ years in a typical home setting.  Check out our competitors who use plain generic printer paper for twice the cost!  

Metal Prints are a one-of-a-kind artform where our images are transferred directly onto aluminum and preserved with state of the art glossy finishes that make everyone say WOW!  I bet you have never seen a more brilliant and impressive print!  The colors are vibrant and the luminescence is amazing.  Our metal prints feature 1/8" rounded corners and a custom mounting system that 'floats' the image off the wall by 1/2 inch. 

Please call or email for custom sizes.
