1940's Northland Hannes Schneider Vintage Ridge Top Skis

These are some of my favorite skis from my collection. These Hannes Schneider Model Northland Skis are as good as they get. Hannes was from St. Anton, Austria, and is known as the father of modern skiing.In 1939 he moved his operations to Cranmore Mountain Ski Resort in North Conway, New Hampshire. He had run into trouble with Nazi policies and even spent time in jail after the Anschluss. During the Second World War he helped train the 10th Mountain Division of the U. S. Army in which his son Herbert served. Hannes became a member of the US Ski Hall of Fame in 1958.

Made by Northland Ski Company of St Paul MN.6' 9" long.
