Yes we do! We craft a limited number of standard models for Fall and Winter sales, once those are sold out we start producing on an build-to-order basis. We incorporate lean manufacturing in our facility and can produce your skis within a few days if the stock is sold out.
Sulo "Shaggy" Lehto was our co-founders' grand/great-grand uncle. Shaggy carved skis by hand in Kearsarge Michigan, deep within Michigan's Copper Country in the early 1900s. With great pride, the family heritage is forever ingrained in our brand.

No, we do not sell or mount any bindings. We do include a mounting guide with every pair of skis, so your local shop will know exactly what to do.
We generally recommend the Marker Griffon or Marker Squire for general use. Our skis are compatible with just about any binding that is sold separately from skis.
You brake width should be equal to or greater in size than the waist width of your skis. For example if you get the Ahmeek 105, your brake width should be at least 105 mm wide.
On each ski we stamp a horizontal notch at the boot midsole location. Your local ski shop will line that notch up with their binding jig to correctly position your bindings.
You may adjust your mounting position based on individual requirements.
