The Cecilie BC ski was developed in collaboration with the adventurer and Åsnes ambassador Cecilie Skog.
Tuned for women, the Cecilie BC’s full steel edge and moderate wax pocket offer stability and an enduring, dependable grip; easy to turn, its sidecut and width make for a ski offering excellent support and float on deeper snow.
A backcountry ski for women who enjoy hiking or Nordic touring, the Cecilie BC ski is equipped with Skinlock, ready for an X-Skin to be attached in an instant for climbing.
Cecilie Skog is one of the world’s premier adventurers. The only woman to have made the ascent of the Seven Summits – the highest points on all seven continents – she has crossed Greenland, climbed Cho Oyu and K2, and reached both the South and the North Pole.
Choosing the right length
Ski length is determined according to body weight and height. The table below is only a guide, however – experience, skill, terrain and individual needs can all influence your choice of length.
Generally speaking, moving through rugged terrain calls for shorter skis than the open mountain plateau. And for beginners, short skis are easier to control. If you’re mainly skiing along tracks, length isn’t the most crucial factor. For good float on deep snow, a slighter wider ski is useful. Lighter skiers might consider a shorter ski; heavier skiers a longer ski. Skiers with loads such as backpacks and sledges might consider a longer ski.
