  • Quality takes time and good things come to those who wait!

Women's All Mountain - Powder Skis

The Medora 105s are mid-fat all mountain - powder skis disguised in a sleek 105mm width platform. They are ideal for anyone looking for a wider ski to have serious fun all over the mountain, but wanting to maximize their flotation when the powder is fresh. They are the perfect skis to take out in the morning powder, then bust through crud and rail on groomers.

Why You'll Love Them

  1. The 105mm width is so fun, stable, and forgiving in variable snow, you'll ski places you never have and float effortlessly.
  2. The dual sidecut radii create and camber/rocker profile create an amazingly balanced ride whether the conditions are fresh, chewed up, or groomed.
  3. Camber pockets molded into the overall camber maximize edge hold on hardpack.
  4. A full twin tail lets you easily release turns and confidently maneuver in tight terrain. 
  5. Hybrid MidLight construction makes the burly construction tour friendly at under 1750 grams per ski (162 cm).

New for 2019


For the 2018/19 season, the Medora 105 underwent a complete redesign (with their Ahmeek 105 counterpart) of the construction and camber/rocker profile while maintaining the same, rock solid sidecut shape. Our goal was simple, lighter, stronger, better flotation, without compromising anything (especially edge grip). 

  • MidLight Construction: weight reduced by over 1/2lb per pair!
  • New Camber/Rocker Profile: increased gradual tip rocker length to increase flotation and maneuverability, maintained camber + camber pockets for edge grip, increased tail early rise to increase maneuverability. 
  • Several Construction Changes: UHMW Sidewalls - bombproof materials for the harshest conditions, increased tip/tail rubber to help with head-on impacts, added edge heat treatment for durability and long edge life.

Best Skis Ever!

The “do it all” ski! I can take these anywhere and know I will have a fun day no matter the conditions. They are great at busting through the crud, keeping you afloat in the pow, and putting a smile on your face with every quick engaging turn on those groomer days! These skis go with me to Boyne Mountain, Mt. Bohemia, backcountry skiing in MI & Canada, and vacation days out West (Alaska and CO, so far). I highly recommend these skis to every intermediate to advance lady out there looking for a wider, do it all ski. Enjoy!

Disclaimer: My husband is a co-owner of Shaggy's, but honestly, I think these are the best skis ever!

Love these skis!

I've skid these ladies in Michigan, Montana and Colorado and they are amazing in all conditions. I even race on them in my beer league! Wide underfoot, yet easy to turn and very responsive! I highly recommend these skis to friends and strangers all the time. Get a pair! You won't be disappointed!

I ride a 168; I'm 5'3 and there isn't much I won't try on the Madoras

WOW!!

The Medoras are my go to ski for all conditions and they are particularly fun in powder and crud. Confidence inspiring, I skied some steep slopes in both Michigan and Alaska on my Medoras and they felt amazing. They hold an edge on corduroy and I can't imagine skiing deep snow without them. Awesome skis!

Carbon Fiber Skis vs Fiberglass Skis - Skis Handmade in the USA


STANDARD LAYUP


Our standard layup construction includes a select cut Ash hardwood core wrapped with triaxial fiberglass and carbon fiber stringers under the core. The carbon stringers are used to increase pop and rebound energy in the ski, while complementing the predictable and torsionally rigid feel of the triaxial fiberglass.

WHICH CONSTRUCTION SHOULD I GET?

The standard layup is best suited for the majority of skiers, it blends the traditional hardwood core with an energetic feel. Skis utilizing this construction perform virtually the same as their Pure Carbon counterpart. Best for all mountain skiing with limited backcountry touring.


NANOMAG® DAMPING SYSTEM LAYUP


This method of construction incorporates a sheet of nanoMAG® magnesium into our Standard Layup that significantly reduces vibration and chatter in the nastiest conditions. The damping of the material increases edge hold and creates an exceptionally smooth ride.

WHICH CONSTRUCTION SHOULD I GET?

The nanoMAG® Damping System is suited for the skier looking for the ultimate in smooth skiing, especially when making high speed turns. This option maximizes grip on ice. Two words to describe this option are "Smooth and Stable". This will slightly reduce liveliness (vs. Standard or Pure Carbon) but gives you that Cadillac Ride!

PURE CARBON LAYUP


Our Pure Carbon construction includes an ultra lightweight biaxial Carbon Fiber (+-45 deg. orientation) coupled with a slightly heavier unidirectional Carbon Fiber. A full Carbon model allows for an exceptionally lightweight and responsive ski. The exceptionally high strength and stiffness of the Carbon Fiber allows us to use a lightweight Poplar wood core, that is Select Cut in Northern Michigan. For maximum binding screw retention, we mill out the core and place an extra retention plate in the binding area. Average weight savings versus their standard counterpart is 1.6 - 1.8 LB/Pair.

WHICH CONSTRUCTION SHOULD I GET?

The Pure Carbon layup is best suited for the skier looking to often use the ski for backcountry touring where the weight savings allows for more climbing, or someone looking for the lightest ski. Many skiers have reported back that they are able to increase their on-snow time when the conditions are rough, primarily due to reduced muscle fatigue. Skis utilizing this construction perform virtually the same as their standard counterpart, however have a significant weight savings.

*Please note that due to the opacity of Carbon Fiber, skis with this construction will not have "clear windows" into the core as on some models. The windows will instead show the carbon fiber on top of the wood core. Alternatively, and based on availability you may specify to have your graphic printed on a lightweight matte finish white material. Ski graphics with "windows" to see the core, will be white instead.

STANDARD LAYUP


Our standard layup construction includes a select cut Ash hardwood core wrapped with triaxial fiberglass and carbon fiber stringers under the core. The carbon stringers are used to increase pop and rebound energy in the ski, while complementing the predictable and torsionally rigid feel of the triaxial fiberglass.

WHICH CONSTRUCTION SHOULD I GET?

The standard layup is best suited for the majority of skiers, it blends the traditional hardwood core with an energetic feel. Skis utilizing this construction perform virtually the same as their Pure Carbon counterpart. Best for all mountain skiing with limited backcountry touring.


NANOMAG® DAMPING SYSTEM LAYUP


This method of construction incorporates a sheet of nanoMAG® magnesium into our Standard Layup that significantly reduces vibration and chatter in the nastiest conditions. The damping of the material increases edge hold and creates an exceptionally smooth ride.

WHICH CONSTRUCTION SHOULD I GET?

The nanoMAG® Damping System is suited for the skier looking for the ultimate in smooth skiing, especially when making high speed turns. This option maximizes grip on ice. Two words to describe this option are "Smooth and Stable". This will slightly reduce liveliness (vs. Standard or Pure Carbon) but gives you that Cadillac Ride!
