Had my Ahmeek 95’s built last summer with in house graphics. Called after receiving my proofs and made a few changes. Shaggy’s was happy to make some custom changes at no extra charge. Received them and topped with Marker Griffons. The Midwest was light on snow early so I made first turns on new skis out west in early December. Two more trips out west and a bunch of Midwest skiing in 20/21 found me loving my Shaggy’s more with every turn. I recommend them to everyone who will listen. Great product and customer service!
My maiden day had very Northern Michigan surface...very hard and noisy, 6* temp which evolved to 28* and scattered piles of shavings. The Ahmeeks rocked it all! We have many race teams on the hill that provide excellent visual modeling and I felt the Ahmeeks were disguised racing boards. Powerful enough for the conditions. Even had a 100 yard section of steep, sharp moguls to play on and the Ahmeeks were great there as well. I’ve got some fitness work to do to get the best out of them, and that’s perfect!
I've now skied on the Ahmeek 95s for a full season and I can saw without a doubt that I love them. They've been great for everything Michigan has. They're quick and responsive through the trees and will punch right through the crud on crusty days. I also took them out to Winter Park for a week and they were perfect there. WP got slammed with 40"+ over the week I was there and the skis handled it beautifully
After skiing on K2’s my entire life I thought I’d make a change I’m in my 40’s and so glad I made the change. After emails & talking to the guys at Shaggy’s we determined the 95’s would be the best fit. I’ve skied icy conditions, groomed condition, days with heavy crud & even a little powder. In every condition these skis handled flawlessly. I can’t wait to see how they handle the spring snow of Colorado. I have times skiing with my kids & they are very playful but then you can turn them loose on the black diamonds & push them as hard as you can & never feel out of control. The only problem is my wife tried all the Shaggy’s at a demo & now wants to retire her K2’s for a pair of Shaggy’s . Looks like next year we will add another pair of Shaggy’s.
Last week I got my first chance on the Ahmeek 95's in Steamboat. First day was all groomers and the edging on the Ahmeek 95 were great. Better than I expected for a 95 underfoot. These skis like medium to long radius turns with speed. On the app I use, it showed I had 30-35 mph sustained speeds with a top speed of 45 mph and they were stable. The groomers were fun.
Second day I got 6” of fresh snow. Again, they handled those conditions great. I think these conditions is where they are at their best. Plowed thru the crud and still getting good edge hold. Especially in the latter part of the day when everything is skied over.
On my third day, I woke up to 15” of snow. They skied well thru the deep stuff, however, there was a little bit of limitation to them in the deeper snow. I know this is to be expected in deep powder with a 95 underfoot ski, but I was still happy with their performance. I just had to work them a little harder.
I am a solid intermediate skier that skis most of the mountain except for steep mogul runs.
Overall, I am very pleased with the skis.
