On this episode of the Shaggy's VLOG we build a surprise special copper infused custom pair of Ahmeek 105s for ski builder/co-owner John with a few unexpected additions. Shari (John's wife) asks to embed a few extra parts into the skis specifically for him and our team makes it happen!

To get you hands on a pair of these custom copper Ahmeek 105s (without the pennies...) head over to www.skishaggys.com/collections/limited-edition-skis/products/custom-copper-ahmeek-105-5-pair-available where we have 5 pair available (one of each length)!
