Description:

Åre is located in the central part of Sweden, and is one of Scandinavia's largest ski resorts. The ski area was founded in 1909. Åre is Sweden's most popular resort and the biggest ski area in the Nordic countries, with everything from very easy beginner runs to very challenging expert slopes. Åre has hosted the Worlds Alpine Championships in 1954, 2007, and are the host in 2019.

This poster is promoting the 1943 Swedish Alpine Ski Championships and depicts a skier in front of "Åre Bergbana", a funicular railway that still brings skiers up to the "Fjällgården" area in Åre.

Hans Hansson (men) and May Nilsson (women) from Åre SK was the gold winners in Slalom in 1943. Giant slalom was not yet introduced.

The poster is in very good condition with some minor repairs, and is mounted linen. This is a limited poster and I guess not many are still alive.
