    ASNES 90 YEARS OF SKI MANUFACTURING
    For 90 years Åsnes has manufactured robust mountain skis for touring and expeditions. The history of Åsnes began in 1910 when the oldest brother in the Åsnes family received a job position at the Hagen Ski factory in Christiania (present day Oslo). Here, he learned the art of crafting skis, and by 1913 four of the six Åsnes brothers worked for the Hagen Ski factory. In 1922, two of the brothers traveled back home to Straumsnes and started manufacturing skis in a traditional « sperrestova» barn on the farm. Within about a year all of the four brothers working for the Hagen Ski factory moved back home to Straumsnes to manufacture their own skis. In the beginning the brothers didn’t have much funds but they had the motivation and a strong work ethic. They received their lumber from the other side of the fjord and paid for it with fish. On the way over to purchase the lumber they would spend their time fishing in the fjord. They rowed the lumber back to Straumsnes, and out of these pieces of lumber came the most amazing skis the west coast of Norway had ever seen. Åsnes has a long and rich history based upon hard work and true grit. The Åsnes family built their first factory in 1933 and in 1937 the brothers company, Åsnes Ski AS, received their first order from the military of defense. In 1948 the factory burned down, with the help of family and friends a new factory was raised within two years. The new factory was three stories tall and had a total of 500 square meters of floor space. The factory was expanded several times over the following years and at its largest had a floor space of over 2500 square meters. Åsnes had one of its peak years in 1977, they manufactured 137,000 pairs of skis at the Straumsnes factory. There were rough times during the following years at the Straumsnes factory. In 1985 Åsnes had a comeback with the increasingly trendy Telemark Ski. The skin lock system was released in 2003 and within the past few years has once again given Åsnes a strong position back in the ski market.
