Another wonderful set of Maple antique skis. They feature the pointed tips (nipple tips) that were originally thought to cut and therefore track through snow with more efficiency. Also note the very decorative footpad and bear trap binding. Whether you are looking to add to your antique ski collection (these are true Northland brand skis) or purchase a set for your home decor, you'll be happy if you choose 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.
