What a wonderful set of antique skis. I realize I've said this before on a couple other sets of skis for sale, but these are truly as good as they come. We recently decommissioned this set from our Vintage Winter Sports Museum. Their labels are just about perfect and have been preserved with our special blend of natural wood oil and beeswax. They also feature pointed tips (nipple tips) that were originally thought to cut and therefore track through snow better. 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.
