"The Shaggy's Story" Video

"The Shaggy's Story" Video

September 18, 2014

We are excited to release The Shaggy's Story video telling the story of the origins of the company while crafting skis in our job-shop style factory located in Northern Michigan.

The Shaggy's Story, created by Marc Moline of Antix Creative, details the touching story of the company and the family behind it, from its creation in 2005 through the present. Viewers will gain a new insight into how and why we choose to create handcrafted skis. The story is presented alongside the creation of a pair of skis from milling wood cores and die-cutting ski bases through pressing and finishing.

The feature also includes filming locations in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula such as Mount Bohemia and Quincy Mine within the Keweenaw National Historical Park.

The video can be viewed at http://vimeo.com/105086004

Thanks to everyone for your continued support!
