Strand Ski Factory Making Skis in 1930's Vintage Photo

Decorate your home or office with our archival photo reproductions of workers crafting round tipped skis at the Strand Ski Company. The factory, located in New Richmond, WI during the 1930's, and was one of the earliest ski factories in the USA. They also manufactured toboggans and canoe paddles.

Martin A. Strand, the company’s founder, began manufacturing skis believing he could capitalize on the new ski clubs that were beginning to form in Red Wing, Minnesota and Ishpeming, Michigan. He modeled his skis after the popular Norwegian Telemark ski as did most ski manufacturing companies of the period. Strand’s skis were carved from a single piece of wood and had wooden edges and bottoms that required wax to prevent snow from sticking. Later models included skis specifically designed for jumping and cross-country racing. Each piece is printed on our state-of-the-art Epson printers, and shipped within 24 hours in a 3 inch tube to avoid compression.
