A wonderful example of a Northland Northbilt skis made of Hickory wood. These Ridgetop skis are in excellent condition with one good label, are UNMOUNTED (never been skied!) and have been cleaned with our natural oil and beeswax finish. They have numbers stamped by the footplate. A wonderful set of mid 1930's old wood skis.

Skis, Poles, Boots, Bindings, Toboggans, and Snowshoes were manufactured at Hastings, Minnesota, St. Paul and in Laconia, New Hampshire.
