This captivating poster portrays a skier ascending a steep uphill slope, adorned in the traditional attire of the era. The skier's ensemble features the iconic Norwegian knitted stockings, complemented by plus-four trousers and wooden skis, evoking a sense of timeless charm and nostalgia. It truly encapsulates the essence of classic Norwegian skiing.
For avid collectors of Norwegian ski posters, this piece is an absolute must-have, representing a cherished addition to any discerning enthusiast's collection.
