1970's Kongsberg Vintage Cross-Country Skis

Although these Kongsberg Skis are in wonder condition, the lighting and reflections that occur during the process of taking the photo of the skis can make the skis to appear to have unusual coloring.

Kongsberg (literally "The King's Mountain") is a municipality and town at the southern end of the Numedal valley, in the county of Buskerud, Norway. The town is known for many great ski jumpers. Birger Ruud and his two brothers, as well as many other townsmen, such as Petter Hugsted, won numerous medals in Winter Olympics and other international championships in the 1930s and 40s.

"Kongsberg" ski factory started in 1939, although it operated under a different name for 10 years prior. Ski jumper Sigurd Hoff had managed the Brødrene Hoff ski factory in Rollag, Norway for ten years. When Sigurd moved the business to Kongsberg, it was natural to change the name of the ski brand. He thought that Kongsberg sounded better, The name was good for advertising and had a kind of seal of approval because ski jumpers from there dominated the national and international ski scene.

These Kongsberg vintage cross-country skis made in Norway would make a great ski for you next retro ski race, or great decor for your ski lodge.
