Holmenkol 20. November 2019

It's official: We are the world's first eco-certified ski wax manufacturer!

Our biodegradable Natural Skiwax bars have been awarded with the Nordic SWAN Eco-Label!

 
Good enough to ski like a pro, but eco enough to protect our nature.
With freshly prepared skis, of course with our bio hot wax, you are best prepared on and off the slopes directly into the new winter season! 

Skiing is our passion. In the morning, when the sun rises behind the  mountains and everything packed in cotton and
still untouched, then it says: grab your skis or snowboard,
straight into the gondola and up to the mountain station. Or:
Skins on and climb through snow-covered Winter forests to the summit.
To enjoy such days in the best possible way, we have a
high demands on our material.
The proper care of skis or snowboards plays a central role here.
