      The Ahmeek 105s are mid-fat all mountain skis with an oversized appetite for adventure. Whether you're scouting fresh powder lines or ripping corduroy on the frontside, the Ahmeek 105s are right at home. The hybrid MidLight construction, precision-tuned rocker/camber profile, variable sidecut radius, and 105 mm waist make them ideal for taking on whatever Mother Nature throws at you.

      The three models of the Ahmeek collection bridge the gap between aggressive freeride and playful freestyle. They allow 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.

      The Ahmeek 105s are in a league of their own. Powerful yet playful; light yet substantial. They'll take you wherever you want to go. Ready to shoot into the trees? Easy. Want to rip a groomer? Done. Only want to travel with one pair of skis? Grab the Ahmeek 105s and get ready to take your skiing to the next level.

      • Tip Rocker maximizes flotation in powder and busts through crud.
      • 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 for weight reduction without sacrificing pop and energy.
      • Rounded Mini-Cap top edge with full-height UHMW sidewalls are bombproof and look good too.

      Do you offer quantity discounts for custom skis?

      Yes! We waive the custom artwork fees for orders over 5 pair (same ski, same length). Contact us for further discounts on orders over 10 pair.

      I don't have my graphics ready, can I still order order now?

      Yes, we will put your skis into production when you send us your artwork. Feel free to order ahead of time.

      I would like a custom illustration or full custom artwork for my graphic, can you do that?

      We can set you up with either our graphic designer or send print specs to your preferred artist/designer. The art cost for this starts at $200 and increases based on complexity.

      What colors will my ski base be?

      They will be the the standard base colors/graphics from the stock version of your ski model. For example - the Ahmeek 105s have one ski black with "blue Shaggy's" letters and one ski blue with black "Shaggy's" letters - so any customized Ahmeek 105 will have that corresponding base. Depending on stock levels, we may be able to do an all black base with different color "Shaggy's" letters - call us at (231)459-4323 to inquire.

          MidLight Construction

          Ahmeek 105 Ski Construction - What makes skis

          Core

          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.

          Composites

          Unidirectional Carbon Fiber strips below the core, lightweight Triaxial Fiberglass above and beneath the core, Fiberglass binding mat underfoot. Rubber bonding strips placed along edges, sidewalls, and ends for rock solid bonding.

          Sidewall

          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.

          Topsheet

          Clearview gloss Nylon with sublimated graphics and transparent windows to inside the ski. 

          Base + Edge

          1.4 mm CNC Knife Cut 4001 Race Grade Durasurf sintered UHMW. 2.2 mm over-sized and heat treated edges take a beating.

          Here's a basic chart to get you started:

          Ski Sizing Chart


          Sizing skis is a little bit of an art and a little bit of a science. There are numerous factors that all affect the optimal ski length for you. 

          A few of the factors are:

          • Skier size and weight
          • Skier ability (experts size up, beginners size down)
          • Type of terrain you like
          • Where you normally ski
          • Current ski size

          The list could go on and on, but if you need help with the decision, always feel free to call us at 231.459.4323, live chat, or email us!

          What snow conditions are they made for?
          Ahmeek 105 Snow Usage - Powder - Crud - Trees - Groomers

          Are they right for me?
          You're looking for one ski that can do it all with confidence. The one pair to grab - whether a storm just rolled through or you've been skiing the same crud for the last two weeks. You want to adventure to new parts of the mountain and possibly head into the backcountry. You want a ski with unmatched versatility, because you never know what you might find next!

          What length should I get?
          The Ahmeek 105s have 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 in the previous tab for more info.

          What bindings should I get?
          You can use any binding on the Ahmeek 105s 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?
          Graphics: Full custom topsheet graphics 
          Construction: Get a consultation

          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 3° side edge bevel and a slight tip/tail detune. The skis are waxed with a universal temperature wax to get you going.

          The Rundown

          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.

          Why You'll Love Them

          1. These skis are built to take on anything. From bushwhacking the backcountry to billygoating on windblown ice, the Ahmeek 105s are the skis for when compromising isn't an option.
          2. The 105 mm waist width will keep you floating in powder, yet is nimble on hardpack and in tight, technical terrain.
          3. Camber Pockets molded into the overall camber maximize edge hold on hardpack.
          4. Full twintip tails make the Ahmeeks maneuver easily in the tightest trees.
          5. MidLight construction makes these burly skis tour-friendly at under 1925 grams per ski (174 cm).

          Loving my Ahmeek 105s

          Ski season is winding down here in Minnesota, and now that I've had 10 days on my Ahmeek 105s I'm writing this review. Really pleased with my skis, I mostly ski at Welch Village ski area near the Twin Cities, occasionally in northern Minnesota, unfortunately no trips "out West" this season, so I'm pretty much skiing Midwestern hardback snow. The Ahmeek 105s simply rip . . . never would have expected a "fat" ski to hold an edge, turn after turn, like these do. Wow! Had the chance to ski spring snow conditions at Spirit Mountain, Minnesota yesterday (March 6th) and got to experience how these skis handled higher speeds on long, cruising runs, cutting turns through slushy snow at high speed. . . and I was again so impressed. Stable, damp, fast . . . powerful. Can't wait to experience a powder day out West next winter with my Ahmeek 105s. I love how Shaggy's skis are designed & built in the Midwest, for skiing in the Midwest . . . plus everywhere else! The customer service I received from Jeff at Shaggy's last Spring when I bought my skis was great . . . super helpful in making my decision to buy. Highly, highly recommend!

          Bought last spring after a trip to Vail and realized I needed more float in my life. Since I primarily ski in Michigan, I was concerned that 105s may be too wide for fun on frontside groomers and I couldn’t have been more wrong. From first run I smiled from ear to ear, amazed at the incredible ride and performance. Smooth as a Benz and responsive as a Porsche when pressed. I’m looking forward to my next COLORADO trip which inspired me to join the shaggy family.

          So much fun

          Finally had a chance to try these beauties out yesterday and I'm completely amazed at how they handled ever changing conditions. Warm slop to freezing chunks to a bit of ice they plowed through everything. No powder to report. Can't believe the way they handled groomers, they just change direction on a dime and rip. I seriously don't feel I need another ski for anything. Fun. Jeff and the crew guided me through the decision process and the final product is perfect for me. The custom Tubby graphics on the Ahmeek 105 is beautiful and got lot's of compliments. Thank you guys for building a great ski (right here in MI), directly answering the phone every call, and supporting those who needed PPE. Great company and people who deserve the success they've earned. When my kids are ready to size up, you know where I'll be ordering.

          These skis are amazing in any condition- groomed, powder, crud, mashed potatoes, whatever. Truly a Joy to own and ski on.

          Super Happy with my Ahmeek 105’s!!!

          I spent a lot of time analyzing skis and specs before finally making my selection and deciding on Shaggys Ahmeek 105’s. I mounted them up with Atomic Shifts and selected a pair of Scarpa Maestrale RS boots as I’m planning to do some side country-back country skiing with them. I’ve only gotten one day on them yet, but there was about 4” of fresh on the ground at Red Lodge yesterday and they were just what I was looking for. Playful yet confidence inspiring when I found the ice underneath. I charge pretty hard most of the time and was concerned that they may be chattery at speed in icy and firm conditions, but there wasn’t anything to be worried about I couldn’t push them hard enough to experience any. I’m sure that Michigan hardwood is responsible for that. Definitely easier to swing in the trees than my Rossignol 100 HD Ti’s, more playful, and just as dependable when I needed an edge. The craftsmanship on these is incredible and Aurora Borealis graphic is beautiful. I’ll be back the next time I need a new pair of skis and when my kids grow into adult sized skis I’ll be hooking them up with Shaggys!
