Can you combine a city job with regular trips to the tracks? In our latest Nordic video we follow three friends from Oslo who manage exactly that. With a little help from our Skintec waxless skis of course.

When you’re busy working, getting time to ski can be difficult. But finding that time can be really good for you physically and mentally. In the latest installment of our Nordic video series, we follow Egil Bjerkli as he jumps on the metro and out to the tracks that surround his home city of Oslo. In the process we meet his friends Elin Årseth and Jan Sigurd Sørensen – and ask what motivates them all to make time in their busy schedules for skiing.When you’re busy working, getting time to ski can be difficult. But finding that time can be really good for you physically and mentally. In the latest installment of our Nordic video series, we follow Egil Bjerkli as he jumps on the metro and out to the tracks that surround his home city of Oslo. In the process we meet his friends Elin Årseth and Jan Sigurd Sørensen – and ask what motivates them all to make time in their busy schedules for skiing.

All have different reasons – for Egil it’s his weekly workout, Elin’s training to ski Vasaloppet and for Jan it’s quality time with his partner and close friend. But all agree their ski time is one of the most precious parts of the week. ‘When you get a bit older you have less time for sports’ says Elin, "Jan is working late and I’ve got kids to take care of, but we always try to keep some time for skiing."

“When I work late, my skiing time is even more important.”

PERFECT CITY “OSLO”, PERFECT SET-UP “SKINTEC”

Something Egil, Elin and Jan also agree on is how lucky they are to be in Oslo – with over 2000km of tracks to explore a short metro ride away from town. And of course they’re helped by their skis, too – our Skintec waxless skis that allow them to start skiing the moment they reach the track, without the need to waste precious time kick-waxing or worrying about the right kick-wax for the conditions.

The secret? The grip zones made with 100% Mohair, which produces strong grip and exceptional glide in all snow conditions and temperatures, and means one pair of skis for all snow any time. 

We hope you enjoy the short film! And there’s much more about Skintec here.
