People of Shaggy's
We are passionate about making you the happiest you’ve ever been on the snow. We are a simple family operation help from some great friends.
John (the dad) is chief of production at the factory/showroom, he is a jack of all trades and can build anything. Jeff (son 2) is the product design engineer, he does the ski design work, coming up with new shapes and profiles throughout the year; he and his wife Stephanie are found in the backcountry whenever they get a chance. Jonathon (son 1) and his wife Lindy moved their other business (Outline Industries) to Boyne City and work in testing and consulting . Shari (the mom) makes sure the business actually runs, she is in charge of the office; she can even be found helping laying up skis in the factory.
Without some support from some great friends who knows where we would be. Jeff’s friends from Michigan Tech are always willing to step up and get the word out (thanks Jake, Ryan, Karl, Mike, and everyone else.) We can always count on the Marshall family to help out with the softgoods, George Peet always brings people in to the shop and is a salesman extraordinaire, Margo at High Mountain Creative
for the great graphics on your skis, and our loyal customers that love their skis.
We would like to thank everyone who has made this dream possible; having the ability to work with our family and do what we love is awesome. Moving the factory/showroom to Boyne City has been great and the entire city has been extremely welcoming. We are your local ski company, we are Pure Michigan, and we are American Made!

Sizing skis is a little bit of an art and a little bit of a science. There are numerous factors that all effect the optimal ski length for you.
A few of the factors are:
- Skier size and weight
- Skier ability
- Type of terrain you like
- Where you normally ski
- Current ski size
The list could go on and on, but if you need help with the decision, always feel free to call us at 231.459.4323, live chat, or email us!
Here's a basic chart based solely on height, to get you started.
