Built by Skiers: it's not just a marketing slogan, it's about who actually builds your skis.

Every pair of Shaggy's Skis is built by hand, in our own factory, right here in Northern Michigan. From the initial design, to wood processing, pressing, grinding, and even packaging, every person who touches your skis is themselves a skier.

Skiing isn't just a perk of working at Shaggy's, it's a requirement. The people who build your skis know what you'll put them through, and take the time to build them the right way, not the quickest. Next time you look down at your skis, ask yourself - who made these?
