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.
To say I'm obsessed would be an understatement I love the design and the initial quality is amazing the customer service is awesome too, they were great with helping me pick out the right setup for me!
Ski season is winding down here in Minnesota, and now that I've had 10 days on my Ahmeek 105s I'm writing this review. Really pleased with my skis, I mostly ski at Welch Village ski area near the Twin Cities, occasionally in northern Minnesota, unfortunately no trips "out West" this season, so I'm pretty much skiing Midwestern hardback snow. The Ahmeek 105s simply rip . . . never would have expected a "fat" ski to hold an edge, turn after turn, like these do. Wow! Had the chance to ski spring snow conditions at Spirit Mountain, Minnesota yesterday (March 6th) and got to experience how these skis handled higher speeds on long, cruising runs, cutting turns through slushy snow at high speed. . . and I was again so impressed. Stable, damp, fast . . . powerful. Can't wait to experience a powder day out West next winter with my Ahmeek 105s. I love how Shaggy's skis are designed & built in the Midwest, for skiing in the Midwest . . . plus everywhere else! The customer service I received from Jeff at Shaggy's last Spring when I bought my skis was great . . . super helpful in making my decision to buy. Highly, highly recommend!
Bought last spring after a trip to Vail and realized I needed more float in my life. Since I primarily ski in Michigan, I was concerned that 105s may be too wide for fun on frontside groomers and I couldn’t have been more wrong. From first run I smiled from ear to ear, amazed at the incredible ride and performance. Smooth as a Benz and responsive as a Porsche when pressed. I’m looking forward to my next COLORADO trip which inspired me to join the shaggy family.
Finally had a chance to try these beauties out yesterday and I'm completely amazed at how they handled ever changing conditions. Warm slop to freezing chunks to a bit of ice they plowed through everything. No powder to report. Can't believe the way they handled groomers, they just change direction on a dime and rip. I seriously don't feel I need another ski for anything. Fun. Jeff and the crew guided me through the decision process and the final product is perfect for me. The custom Tubby graphics on the Ahmeek 105 is beautiful and got lot's of compliments. Thank you guys for building a great ski (right here in MI), directly answering the phone every call, and supporting those who needed PPE. Great company and people who deserve the success they've earned. When my kids are ready to size up, you know where I'll be ordering.
