This cool and rare Swiss ski poster promotes Attenhofer Alpina Bindung (ski bindings),
Adolf Attenhofer won the Swiss Championship in 1917 while working for Ettinger where he developed skis. He also elaborated a method to determine the place of the toe iron in relation to the skier’s ability. From 1915 to 1957, Attenhofer patented many inventions regarding skis, bindings, edges, even clothing. In 1925, he quit Ettinger to start manufacturing Attenhofer skis in Zumikon close to Zürich.
In the 30’s, they acquired the Alpina bindings.
The poster is in good condition. Some minor repaired tears, creases and overpainting in margins. Would look great on the wall in a ski chalet!
