In Norse mythology, Skaği (sometimes anglicized as Skadi, Skade, or Skathi) is a goddess associated with bowhunting, skiing, winter, and mountains.

Skaği is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources; the Prose Edda and Heimskringla, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson, and in the works of skalds.

In all sources, Skaği is the daughter of the deceased Şjazi, and Skaği married the god Njörğr as part of the compensation provided by the gods for killing her father Şjazi.

In Heimskringla, Skaği is described as having split up with Njörğr and as later having married the god Ullr, and that the two produced many children together.

In both the Poetic Edda and the Prose Edda, Skaği is responsible for placing the serpent that drips venom onto the bound Loki. Skaği is alternately referred to as Öndurguğ (Old Norse "ski god") and Öndurdís
(Old Norse "ski lady").

The etymology of the name Skaği is uncertain, but may be connected with the original form of Scandinavia. Some place names in Scandinavia, particularly in Sweden, refer to Skaği.

Scholars have theorized a potential connection between Skaği and the god Ullr (who is also associated with skiing and appears most frequently in place names in Sweden), a particular relationship with the jötunn Loki, and that Scandinavia may be related to the name Skaği (potentially meaning "Skaği's island") or the name may be connected to an Old Norse noun meaning "harm".


Skaği has inspired various works of art.
