I live for the Telemark arc....The feeeeeeel.....I ski miles to get to a place where there is guaranteed snow to do the deal....TM
Bet it's not much like that anymore.
I especially like the quality inspector at the end. He shuffles those skis around like a they were cards... haha.

2 year old video - look at this comment - they've moved production to Czech:
The production of Gamme 54 is now moved to a factory in Czech Republic. The same factory also produce Amundsen/Liv/Cecilie/Nansen and other models from Åsnes . The quality is the same, and the processes is similar. The biggest difference is that this factory also produces the cores.
With regards from Åsnes

It's quite a bit more modernized in the Czech Republic.
I wonder what happened to the old shop in Norway.
