This exquisite vintage travel poster originates from Finland and was originally published in 1949 by the Finnish State Railways. It captures the essence of a winter wonderland, portraying a picturesque scene with skiers gracefully descending a ski slope, accompanied by a pair of ski poles adorned with vibrant red knitted mittens bearing the label "Finland." In the backdrop, a Finnish lake glistens, while a steam locomotive and its carriages traverse beneath a majestic snow-covered mountain.

Finland offers a wealth of opportunities for winter sports enthusiasts, including cross-country skiing and alpine skiing. With approximately 75 ski resorts scattered across the country, most of them small local hills near cities and villages, the true gems lie within the fells of Lapland, serving as quintessential winter holiday destinations. The renowned "Big Four" of Lapland's ski resorts—Levi, Ylläs, Pyhä-Luosto, and Ruka—captivate visitors with their enchanting slopes.

This lovely poster, crafted by Osmo K. Oksanen and Raimo Raimela, is a rare gem in the realm of Finnish ski posters, capturing the essence of its era. Despite exhibiting tears, edge wear, and water stains, this piece remains in almost good condition, eagerly awaiting its place on a wall. Once framed, it will undoubtedly elevate the ambiance of any ski lodge, delivering a captivating visual experience.

This is an Authentic Original Vintage Poster from its time. It's not a new reproduction.
