An Ullr (Ooh-ler) medal is the must-have talisman for every skier. 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. 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. Ullr medals have been popular with European skiers for over 100 years; they wear them for protection from harm while on the mountain. These medals have become highly collectible. 1.5" diameter
