Description
 
Northland Skis Ad Vintage Art Deco Poster

When skis were wood and thongs were leather straps on your bindings... This reproduction poster is from the 1940ís. By the 1930ís Northland claimed to be the largest ski maker in the world and Northland Ski Company made skis, hockey sticks, toboggans and sleds from 1911 to 1974, in St. Paul MN and Laconia, NH. The skier on the poster is Luggi Foeger, who taught skiing for Hannes Schneider at St. Anton in Austria. Foeger came to the U.S., as part of a wave of European ski instructors, in the 1930ís. He later joined the 10th Mountain Division. He was a ski racer, ski area developer, and movie producer. Nice quality reproduction!

Northland Skis poster June 16, 2016
Reviewer: Christopher Foeger from San Anselmo, CA United States  
Very pleased with the poster that is a depiction of my father, Luggi Foeger. I have the original B & W photo from the 40's from which this poster was created. Nice family memorabilia.
Thank you,
Chris Foeger
