      Common Questions

      What ski model should I get?

      What length should I get?

      Ski length should be chosen based on your selected model, ability, and your preferred terrain. Check out our size chart for more info or we're happy to give you a recommendation!

      What bindings should I get?
      You can use any binding on these skis as long as the brake width is at least equal to the waist width of the skis. For example, if you purchase the Belle 90 model, you'll need a brake width of at least 90mm.  We run Marker Griffon and Marker Squire 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.

      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.

      Core

      Laminated ash/poplar hardwood: Long grain premium white ash and tulip poplar is hand selected and cut into full-length strips.

      Great One Ski Quiver

      The Ahmeek's are a great pair of skis for the midwest with occasional trips out west. They handle moderate powder and tight trees with ease, while remaining fun on groomers and mixed midwest conditions. They are much lighter than my previous pair of skis, yet stiff enough to charge through chop! I really like the limited edition graphics as well and the ability to customize the design if desired! This ski has made both my narrower and fatter skis essentially obsolete, and is definitely more fun to ride that both of those!

      Best Skis I've Ever Owned

      I bought the 2022 Ahmeek 105's after taking a few runs on a pair of Shaggy's that my brother lent me, and I couldn't have been happier with them last season. I was expecting them to be a good all-mountain skis that made some compromises on differing terrains, but I couldn't have been more wrong. They were a true joy on the long groomers that I rode in Utah. They carve well, and are incredibly controlled when you want to go fast. I didn't get to experience them on a powder day out west, but on the powder I could find they were incredible. I also had a chance to run them through some mixed conditions at Mt. Bohemia, and they made my trip up there one of the most memorable so far. For a pair of skis that are a joy in so many different conditions, I couldn't have asked for anything better.

      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…
