Otto Sverdrup BC Ski: A Versatile Backcountry Option for Mountain Enthusiasts

The Otto Sverdrup BC ski is a versatile backcountry option, featuring generous sidecut, pronounced camber, and a wax pocket for efficient skiing.

Ideal for slightly longer trips in varied and hilly terrain, this ski allows for enjoyable turns along the way. It’s a great all-around Nordic BC ski, combining a modern twist with classic mountain ski qualities, suitable for mountain enthusiasts.

For optimal performance with Åsnes’ short-skin system, choose the right skin: X-skin 45mm Mohair for cold/moderate terrain or X-skin 45mm Nylon for wet/steep conditions.

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.
