Ullr Bronze Ski Medal - 'Patron of Winter Sports'

Ullr medal, rich brass color, 1 1/2 inches wide, with a 5 inch blue cord to allow one to attach the medal to a pack or jacket. The back side of the medal is translated as 'Patron Saint of Skiers'. Ullr medals have been popular with skiers for over 100 years; they wear them for protection from harm while on the mountain. These medals have become highly collectible.

Ullr is the mythical Norse God of Winter who enjoyed the cold weather and loved traveling throughout the land, gliding along on his skis or snowshoes. He was, in fact, unbeatable on skis, never losing a race. Some believe the Aurora Borealis is the snow flying off the tail of his skis.

In Germanic mythology Ullr is the main ski god of the 19th and 20th century; his character helped to establish a feeling of common identity among skiing pioneers in Norway and Central Europe, who prayed to him to insure the earth will be covered with snow, protecting it from winter's harm. In the United States, ski towns throw parties and parades in his honor.

Size 1 1/2 inches diameter, with a 5 inch blue cord to allow one to attach the medal to a pack or jacket.
