How To Choose The Right Asnes Ski
BC skis for long outings and expeditions:
Durable, tough, and semi-narrow skis. Most of these skis fit into groomed tracks but are made to work in the harshest conditions, like when you need a ski to cross Greenland or get to the South Pole. In general, really versatile skis for flat and moderate terrain. They are directional, relatively stiff, has a high camber profile.
WAXLESS BC skis for long outings and expeditions:
Allround BC and Telemark skis:
A bit wider mountain skis. Made to be easier to ski downhill, whilst still preserving the directional walking abilities. These skis are easier ski downhill turns with, more playful and in general have better downhill abilities. Still suitable for longer trips, but will excel in more varied hilly terrain. These skis also have a softer flex and less camber than the narrower skis, mainly to give better downhill capabilities. All of these skis are too wide for groomed tracks, thrive out in the mountain, and are usually used in combination with frequent use of short skins.
Waxless Allround BC skis:
Dog-skis/mountain skis without steel edge:
Skis made specifically for those who own dogs. All these skis are made without steel edges to prevent injuries on the dog’s feet an paws. Not to say that these skis cannot be used by others too, but they are made with dogs in mind. The Breidablikk could very well be a really nice and safe telemark ski, just to mention other users. We have made the Breidablikk as maybe the most versatile dog-friendly ski on the market.
Wide skis, often called “hybrid skis” as they are made as wide mountain or BC skis, but is borderline to alpine touring skis. These are all fantastic skis for mountain enthusiasts, telemark skiers or those seeking a lightweight alternative to alpine touring skis for long approaches or expeditions. In general made for use in steeper terrain, deeper snow, and more difficult downhill conditions. These skis have a little-to-no wax pocket, and will usually be used almost exclusively with short skins on.
Playful, wide, lots of sidecuts and solid skis made to stay on top of the snow when it gets deep and for easy turns on hardpack.
