Bluenose skis, named after a famous racing schooner, were made in Canada. At one point during the 1920s, there were five ski manufacturers in Nova Scotia.
The most prominent was the Liverpool Woodworking Company, which manufactured the well-known “Bluenose” ski, crafted in “hickory, white ash, birch, maple and pine.”
By 1929, the rights to the Bluenose ski had been purchased by the Canada Ski Company, which moved production to Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia. In 1938, the Harvey E. Dodds Company acquired the manufacturing equipment of Canada Ski and moved the fabrication to Montreal. Dodds continued to produce solid wooden skis until 1950.
