Åsnes is the world leader in backcountry skis and the ski of choice for New Hampshire's backcountry. Since 1910, they have been making skis known for their high quality and the skin-insert system that was introduced in 2003. In recent years, all of the ski production has taken place in the Czech Republic and Sweden in solid factories with a high knowledge of ski production. The design and development are done by 3rd generation Åsnes family – Asbjørn Åsnes and of course the Åsnes ambassadors.
Åsnes is today best known for mountain skis, which is also used for many extreme expeditions, but in addition focuses on more playful skis intended for Mountain Touring.
