The Medora 105 is our widest women’s ski, and it’s made to take full advantage of days when the snow is soft. But it’s more than just a powder ski. The camber underfoot provides great edge hold, while the rockered tips and tails can be easily maneuvered through trees and bumps. When your day consists of chasing freshies in the morning, busting crud after lunch, and railing groomers before last chair, the Medora 105 fits the bill perfectly.

- Tip rocker maximizes flotation in powder and busts through crud.
- Full twintip tail allows the Medora 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 carve groomers, 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 Medora 105 has a rockered tip 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 Medora 105 as long as the brake width is at least 105 mm wide. We run Marker Squire bindings on our demo skis. Visit your local ski shop for bindings and mounting.
What can I customize?
Just about anything from graphics to construction!

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: Super fun and versatile ski for powder days, choppy crud, and soft groomers - my go-to skis. Great for medium to large radius turns but move around quick in the trees.
Design Needs: Float in fresh powder - quickly maneuver through trees and narrow areas - carve on groomers.
Purpose: Make a women's powder ski that is just as strong on groomers and in crud as it is floating through champagne powder.

Laminated ash/poplar hardwood: Long grain premium white ash and tulip poplar is hand selected and cut into full-length strips. Strips are individually flex indexed and laminated together symmetrically. Each laminated core is CNC milled to a precise thickness profile developed for each model and length.
Unidirectional carbon fiber strips below the core, lightweight triaxial fiberglass above and below the core, fiberglass binding mat underfoot. Rubber bonding strips placed along edges, sidewalls, and ends for rock solid bonding.
Entropy Super Sap® epoxy contains 28% bio-based content and is specifically designed for skis. It's formulated for high-strength and impact resistance, which creates a durable, tough, and lightweight composite.
Full-height UHMW - the same raw material as your base, bombproof and double chamfered for reduced swingweight. A rounded mini-cap top edge rolls over the sidewall to protect your topsheets.
Clearview gloss nylon with sublimated graphics and transparent windows to the wood core.

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.
My first pair (of 3) Shaggy's & probably my favorite. I actually got these in a carbon fiber core to offset the heavy AT bindings setup I have on them. I've rode these 5 seasons now. I primarily ski in the Upper Penninsula but they have also been out west. I feel I can face & take on anything with these, truly my ride or die. These are a powerful ski & therefore are not meant for a beginner. BUT I took these out west they will power through EVERYTHING with ease. From any & all variations of powders while also preforming phenomenally in groomers. Very stable underfoot with a wider turning radius but easily controlled. They're not my everyday whip, because not everyday calls for these. But I know that they'll always be a fun, confident ride at my skiing ability & pulling a toboggan. Side note, they also survived an accident (100% my fault) that resulted in a broken leg. The skis were fine.
The “do it all” ski! I can take these anywhere and know I will have a fun day no matter the conditions. They are great at busting through the crud, keeping you afloat in the pow, and putting a smile on your face with every quick engaging turn on those groomer days! These skis go with me to Boyne Mountain, Mt. Bohemia, backcountry skiing in MI & Canada, and vacation days out West (Alaska and CO, so far). I highly recommend these skis to every intermediate to advance lady out there looking for a wider, do it all ski. Enjoy!
Disclaimer: My husband is a co-owner of Shaggy's, but honestly, I think these are the best skis ever!
I've skid these ladies in Michigan, Montana and Colorado and they are amazing in all conditions. I even race on them in my beer league! Wide underfoot, yet easy to turn and very responsive! I highly recommend these skis to friends and strangers all the time. Get a pair! You won't be disappointed!
I ride a 168; I'm 5'3 and there isn't much I won't try on the Madoras
The Medoras are my go to ski for all conditions and they are particularly fun in powder and crud. Confidence inspiring, I skied some steep slopes in both Michigan and Alaska on my Medoras and they felt amazing. They hold an edge on corduroy and I can't imagine skiing deep snow without them. Awesome skis!
