      Details

      Michigan - the name of our beloved home state comes from the Ojibwe word mishigami, meaning “large water” or “large lake.” The water of the Great Lakes is incredibly important to so many aspects of life for not only Michiganders, but all those living in the Great Lakes Region.

      From our ski factory here in Northern Michigan, we’re a short drive from the shores of Lake Michigan, known as michi-gami (“great water”) by the Ojibwe. During the warm months, countless people enjoy its crystal-clear waters, and during the winter our local topography is blessed by its plentiful lake-effect snow.

      The Lake Michigan Limited Edition graphic highlights the famous Sleeping Bear Dunes in the lake’s silhouette (hand-drawn by our own ski builder, Kelsey Fegan), and the wood core is visible throughout most of the ski’s length. The blue sidewalls add a unique touch that meshes perfectly with the overall theme.

      Available on most skis in our line, we’ll only have 100 of the Lake Michigan Limited Edition graphic available, so get yours before they’re gone!

      Show off your love for craftsmanship with this custom build on your new skis! We proudly use Select Cut Northern Michigan hardwoods for our cores and every pair of skis built with this clear topsheet will be unique. No two pieces of wood are ever the same (each pair uses 14 pieces).

      • Lake Michigan die cut base graphic - see the lake on the base of your skis too
      • Real wood - you're seeing the actual construction of the ski

      Construction

      Proudly Made in USA

      Core

      Laminated Ash or 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 along 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. 

      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.

      Ski FAQ

      What snow conditions are they made for?
      This limited edition graphic is available on most ski models that we build, if you need help picking the perfect pair, call us at 231-459-4323 or fill out the form at www.skishaggys.com/pages/help-me-find-skis!

      What length should I get?
      Each model in our ski line has unique characteristics - please visit each individual ski model page for more info or contact us. View 2021 skis at https://www.skishaggys.com/collections/2020-2021-skis.

      What's the base graphic?
      The base graphic features one ski black and one ski blue with opposing "Shaggy's" letters and the shape of Lake Michigan in them. 

      Why aren't they available on the Brockway 80/90/100?
      The construction of the Brockway ski line has has a strip of carbon fiber over the core (the other models the carbon is under the core) and the look is different. If you'd like to get this graphic on those skis, just contact us for a graphic mockup - we'll get them built for you!

      What bindings should I get?
      You can use any binding on these skis. The binding brake width must be at least as wide as the waist width of your selected ski model. For example, the Ahmeek 105s require a brake width of at least 105 mm. We run Marker Griffon bindings on our demo skis. Visit your local ski shop for bindings and mounting.

      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.

      Premium Materials

      Why Shaggy's?

      Every single pair of Shaggy’s is built at our small, family 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.

      Race Tuned
      Tuned in house with a state of the art Wintersteiger Scout Plus, the same automated grinder used by the US Ski Team.
      Precision Fit
      Every ski part is CNC milled or cut and then laminated in solid aluminum tooling for a more precise fit and longer lasting performance.
      Hand Selected and Flexed Hardwood Cores
      Each piece of hardwood is individually flex indexed and laminated symmetrically for a better, more consistent ski core.

      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.
