The Ahmeek 105 is made for skiers who want to explore every aspect of the mountain. The balanced flex perfectly blends power and playfulness, providing maximum versatility. Don’t hesitate to lean it over and let it rip on groomers, as it features best-in-class edge hold. When the snow is soft, the rockered tips and tails make for a lively ride, allowing you to float over powder and weave through trees effortlessly. Put it all together, and the Ahmeek 105 can handle just about anything Mother Nature can throw at it.

- Tip and tail rocker maximize flotation in powder and bust through crud.
- Full twintip tail allows the Ahmeek 105 to maneuver easily in the tightest trees.
- Camber pockets molded within the overall camber triple the turn initiation contact points for maximum edge grip on hardpack.
- Hybrid MidLight construction combines ash and poplar hardwoods with carbon fiber and lightweight triaxial fiberglass for weight reduction without sacrificing pop and energy.
- Balanced flex allows skiers to charge groomers and big terrain, yet have enough flex in the tip and tail to remain playful across the mountain and float through powder.
- Rounded mini-cap top edge with full-height UHMW sidewalls are bombproof and provide a sleek look.
What length should I get?
The Ahmeek 105 has tip rocker and a full twin tail. If you are between lengths, size up for a more stable ride, size down for more maneuverability. Check out our size chart for more info.
What bindings should I get?
You can use any binding on the Ahmeek 105 as long as the brake width is at least 105mm wide. We run Marker Griffon bindings on our demo skis. Visit your local ski shop for bindings and mounting.
What can I customize?

What are Camber Pockets?
Camber Pockets are additional small sections of camber (about 4" long and 0.030" tall) molded into the overall camber of the ski in front of and behind your midsole position. They increase contact pressure to improve grip on hardpack and ice.
Are they tuned and waxed?
Skis come tuned with a 1° base edge bevel and a 2° side edge bevel and a slight tip/tail detune. The skis are waxed with a universal temperature wax to get you going.
Ride Notes: Burly, nimble, light - but not too light - it busts crud with ease and rises up in powder.
Design Needs: Float in deep powder - whip around trees - rail on groomers like a narrower ski.
Purpose: Build one ski to do everything but make the most of a day when the powder is fresh. Make the one ski that you can stash in your car and not need to worry about what conditions are like.

Don't just take our word for it
The Ahmeek 105 could arguably be in this section (all-mountain More Forgiving), our More Stable all-mountain section, or even our All-Mountain Freestyle one. That’s because it’s a damp, pretty stable, and playful ski that offers an excellent blend of firm- and soft-snow performance. Its “camber pockets” in front of and behind the bindings lead to above-average edge hold for a ski this wide. Coupled with its fat, soft tips, that makes the Ahmeek an excellent carver, while its fairly deep tip / tail rocker lines also make it feel maneuverable in tight terrain.

Every single pair of Shaggy’s is built at our small, wholly owned ski factory in Boyne City, Michigan. We source all of our materials as locally as possible and take no shortcuts during the build process, using the most modern equipment and methods to carefully craft our skis.
Cutting-edge technology, premium materials, and limitless customization are worthless if the end product isn’t built with passion. A love for skiing is a prerequisite for each and every employee at Shaggy’s. We design, prototype, and test every ski model before it’s made available to you, and that passion for skiing is clearly evident in our end product.
That exacting detail doesn’t end with your new skis; your experience as a customer is paramount to us as well. Our team is always happy to offer assistance - before, during, and after your ski purchase. Find out for yourself why we refer to our customers as the Shaggy’s Family.
I'm 5'11 and 190lbs, and I'm 52 years old. I purchased these skis primarily for accessing more terrain at my favorite Yooper hill. My old 108's that I use to ski in Alaska were too long for the bus and difficult to maneuver in the trees and narrow shoots, especially in crappy conditions. My Ahmeek 105's at 180cm however, not only allowed me to gain better access, but rip nearly every condition that I've encountered over the last two seasons like nothing I'd ever imagined before. My buddies have tried to convince me that I'm just a good skier, but I'm pretty sure it's the skis. They're light and playful and with a stiff boot, I can push forward and carve the groomers and slash trough mashed taters like I only wish I could have 30 years ago. The length, width and rocker make for a super forgiving ski in the steep glades and shoots and keep me floating high and linking turns from top to bottom without fatigue. That's saying something. In closing, I love these skis and wish it was endless winter!
Ordered a pair of Ahmeek 105s last Sat. They arrived on Wed. Had Look Pivot bindings installed on Thurs. Skied Breck on Fri. Conditions were pretty much dust on hard crust. Skis did really well. Carvers would have been better but they were stable and performed well.
Saturday we had 8” of powder.These skis were incredible making fresh tracks in Horseshoe Bowl and Six Senses. The skis float really well, but also cut through the crud that you get late in the day on powder days. Did not try them in moguls, but will let you know when I do.
Very pleased with Shaggy’s customer service and with the skis.
Bobby Howard, nicknamed, BOHO, that's short for Mt. Bohemia and I'm no Queen, but my Ahmeeks are a rapsidy for you veterans who know. I coined the phrase, "That was Shagaliscious!", for you cultists who need an expression at the bottom of every run. I know, I say it a lot! I even gave my pic, Shaggy's photo of the Week, because I'm looking for some more free merch. But this pic of Bobby's Boards on the only gold chair at BOHO says it all. Lucky! So I enjoyed the extra cushions, stretched out and made owl sounds going to the top. Like this; whoowhoo...whoo..whoo..whooo. Those that heard it thought it was real. Well my hallucinations are my reality and I practice DIY therapy, so I'm good. Ski ya later, and have a Shagaliscious Day!
These are the best skis I've ever owned!!! I've lived in Aspen, have skied up to 100 days in a season and have skied hard on 10+ skis in the last 20yrs. These skis hold a firm edge on fast groomers, are extremely responsive in the bumps, and float through the pow. Shaggys (the business) have excellent customer service and a great story in ski making history. Not to mention I ordered the limited edition Lake Superior finish, which is a work of art in itself that highlights the magical lake and the beautiful trees that grow in the U.P. I will never own anything but Shaggys again!
Such a versatile and fun ski! This ski's tears up everything in its path, just as promised by Shaggy's. No problem getting these to do short quick turns, and they launch out of hard turns on corduroy. Prior ski was 88 under foot and these are way may fun and capable than those, with the added performance/float in pow. A great one ski quiver, indeed! Purgatory, Wolf Creek (see pic), Monarch and Breck so far!
