Åsnes

Åsnes is a renowned Norwegian brand that has a history of producing high-quality skis for touring and mountaineering for over 100 years. The brand was established by the Åsnes family in 1922, and in 1933, they built their first factory.

The company expanded over the years and experienced significant success, manufacturing over 137,000 pairs of skis in 1977. However, the beginning of the 1980s was a challenging time, and in 1998 the company declared bankruptcy. This led to the establishment of a new company called Åsnes Ski AS. Currently, Åsnes Ski AS is a subsidiary of Active Brands AS, which continues to operate the brand.

Today, Åsnes is a world leader in the production of backcountry nordic skis, also known in Norway as “fjellski,” and is the preferred choice for skis among polar expeditions worldwide. Additionally, the brand is a distributor of trap brands such as Colltex and Pomoca. Åsnes is famous for its alpine and cross-country skis, touring poles, and patented trap lock introduced in 2003.

Apart from skis, Åsnes also produces other ski-related equipment such as bindings, poles, and skins. The company has a strong focus on sustainability and uses environmentally friendly materials and production methods wherever possible.

Åsnes has a long history of supplying the Norwegian military with skis, and the brand is also popular among international expeditions and adventure skiers. Despite the production being moved out of Norway, Åsnes still designs and constructs its skis in Voss, Norway, and continues to be a market leader in mountain skiing and leading other developments in the category.

How important is the ski's span when skiing in beaten tracks?

In beaten tracks, the ski's span plays a more significant role in determining how well you float in the snow rather than the ski's length. Choose a ski with an appropriate span to ensure optimal performance on groomed trails.

How should I clean my Åsnes Cecilie BC Skis after use?

Gently remove any snow or dirt from the skis using a soft brush or cloth. If needed, use a mild detergent and lukewarm water to clean the skis thoroughly. Wipe the skis down with a clean, dry cloth, and ensure they are completely dry before storing them.

How can I maintain the performance of the skis throughout the season?

Regularly check your skis for signs of wear and tear, and maintain the base by waxing as needed. Keep the edges sharp and rust-free by using a diamond stone or a gummy stone to remove any burrs or rust.

How should I store the Åsnes Cecilie BC Skis during the offseason?

Store your skis in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Before storing, clean the skis thoroughly and apply a layer of storage wax to the base to protect them. Bindings should be released to their lowest setting to minimize tension on the springs.

Is it necessary to wax the Åsnes Cecilie BC Skis before the first use?

How often should I wax my Åsnes Cecilie BC Skis?

The frequency of waxing depends on the conditions in which you ski and the type of wax used. In general, you should wax your skis every 3-5 days of skiing or when you notice a decrease in glide.
