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.

The Artist

Keweenaw Night Sky by Jeremy Rowe has been capturing the night sky since 2009.

Jeremy relies on smart phone apps that alert him to when Aurora Borealis will put on a show. Sometimes, a glow in the sky at dusk is his cue to load his dog in the car and drive to one of his favorite dark spots 20 miles away. He takes the majority of his photos in Keweenaw County.

He’s raced out before only to find the cloud cover was too thick.

“It’s a decisive moment. If you go to bed, you wake the next morning and somebody else might’ve caught it,” Rowe said.

Rowe picked up photography from his father, who’s an underwater photographer. He promotes his work on Facebook and also maintains a website where people can reach out to him about purchasing prints. It’s exhausting to stay up until 4 a.m. taking photos on a weeknight, but he sees himself as the correspondent for people who go to bed early and never experience the shimmering light show.

“I’m really a conduit for people who don’t get out to see this stuff,” Rowe said. “It does feel adventurous. I’m jumping in the car in the middle of the night and racing up north.”

Many of his favorite photography spots are between Eagle Harbor and Copper Harbor. A 70-degree night last October was especially “phenomenal,” he said.

“When they’re really, really intense, that’s when you don’t even realize time’s going by. You’re inside of the camera,” Rowe said.

AHMEK 105 /Single Quiver Western Ski

Like many avid skiers, Ive traveled for years with multiple skis, always dreaming of characteristics that would be desirable in a single ski travel ski. Let’s face it, traveling with multiple skis or even trying to swap out once on the mountain is a pain. I want, no, need, versatility to ski the entire mountain. The Ahmek 105 with nanomag is the ski Ive dreamed of. This ski is FUN. Trustworthy. Predictable until it isn’t (ie fun, see comparison to WRT below). It’s a workhorse and I will be buying the 115 for next season for deeper/storm days.

This is the 5th ski in my current quiver (Stockli AX, WRT, E100, DPS 106 C2). This ski is lighter than the E100 yet nearly as damp and stable at 50 mph plus. It’s got a kick like my WRT (you read that right). Load this sucker up with shorter turns on harder snow and, not only will the edge be there, but you’ll get some out of the turn ( was shocked by this!). It’s reasonably quick in trees and floats well. The tail is there, but releases on demand. Smears and checks back up immediately. It engages in turns at slow speeds (super important for me, I love edging on cat tracks or mellow slopes). It seems to “want” any turn, or turn shape I throw at it. Tip shape/flex remains stable in chop and at speed (yet it is such a light ski, how!?). All this in a 105 waisted ski, insane! I blindly purchased this ski last summer and, for the first time in years, I am not looking for a replacement in this category.

I am 6’4”, 190. Bought the 186, stock layup/core, added nanomag. P14’s OTL. I do wonder what a longer 188-190 version would be like BUT with the blunt nose the effective length/area appears the same as my 190 Wailer 106’s…

Awesome for Everything

Replaced my old center mount Line Blends with Ahmeek 105s this year. I mounted Marker Griffon bindings 3.7cm forward from the suggested mount point to get a more centered feel to rotate in the air. They worked fantastic in all ways. They're a little fat for groomers but doesn't matter, they handle great. They also are great for skiing switch. They have great grip on ice and handle powder and trees like a champ. They have great balance in the air and are very nimble. I skied my local groomers along with powder, ice, and trees (and rocks) in Winter Park and Breck. Also skied trees, cliffs, powder and ice at Bohemia. It's awesome having skis recognizable as midwestern skis, I recieved a lot of compliments. These skis rip!

True all mountain, all condition ski!

I purchased my Ahmeek 105's July of 2021 and outfitted them with LOOK pivot bindings. I never had a chance to demo the skis before purchase so I primarily went off of previous reviews and the blister review posted on the skis.

Needless to say after a few michigan weekend trips and a week trip out to Idaho I am 100% sold on this ski. I am every impressed on how the ski handles in all conditions. On my trip to idaho we had conditions ranging from spring corn to 5-6" of fresh to hard groomers at the end of our trip. It handled all conditions with ease. The ski charged through the ungroomed chop and was a riot to hop off of the runs into the trees and glades. I was very impressed with the skis frontside groomer performance, and the versalitity to go anywhere on the mountain and not worry about swapping skis.

Awesome ski for all conditions, Thanks Shaggys!

Surprisingly nimble

I recently moved to the up so I got some powder skis having my old race skis for the groomers but I took them out on the groomers and I was able to carve really well which I was shocked by I love them they work really well.

Fantastic Skis

I was a bit hesitant about buying a ski from a small ski company but I am so happy I did, the customer support was outstanding and the ski buying and customizing processes where painless.
The skis themselves both look and ski great, they are truly an all around ski that is the perfect blend of a aggressive and playful ski.
