Why Shaggy's?

You may be wondering what makes us special and why you should put a pair of Shaggy's under your feet for this season.

When you make an investment in Shaggy's you are not just buying a product, you are gaining world class service based right here in your backyard. Ever have a question? We are right here in Michigan and we are here to stay. When you talk to us, you are talking to the passionate ones that are putting your skis together. 


Our goal is simple: make you happier on the snow than you’ve ever been. We are on the never ending mission to build the absolute best product. Our skis are built by the skilled hands of the Thompson family along with the help of some great craftsman. You won’t find the gimmicky “tech” stuff that some other brands put out purely for marketing, we simply use engineering and real world testing (on the snow) to refine and improve our skis.


First and foremost, we design and build our skis to deliver the best performance. Each season we revamp or revise nearly all of our models. Each season we conduct Public Testing Events to get feedback from real skiers like you! At our test events we have hundreds of skiers take out new skis and receive direct feedback. Get on our skis and you will understand why nearly every customer is a repeat customer!


Instead of designing a product and shipping it off to some far away manufacturer - we design, prototype, manufacture, and refine all of our products right here in Northern Michigan, USA!

Direct to You

We build all of our skis and other products in house and sell directly to you. We cut out the middleman and offer you a premium product at some of the industry's best pricing. There's no one in between the builders and you, no one can match our level of service!

Custom Options

Have you ever wanted something different in your skis? Always wanted to design your own graphic? We can do that! How about a custom flex to suit your particular style? We can do it. If you can think of it, we can probably do it - and at a cost that you can afford. 

The real question is, what can we do for you?

Premium Materials

We use the best materials available to craft you the finest skis. Our skis are are built around a Select Cut Northern Michigan Hardwood Core. Hardwood (especially Ash) grown in Northern Michigan is the best in the world, it has extremely long and hearty grain that gives your skis longevity and unsurpassed rebound. Our skis are then wrapped with a blend of Triaxial Fiberglass and Unidirectional Carbon Fiber or with a combination of Biaxial and Unidirectional Carbon Fiber for an ultra-light touring solution!
