- Tip and tail rocker maximize flotation in powder and bust through crud.
- Full twintip tail allows the Ahmeek 105 to maneuver easily in the tightest trees.
- Camber pockets molded within the overall camber triple the turn initiation contact points for maximum edge grip on hardpack.
- Hybrid MidLight construction combines ash and poplar hardwoods with carbon fiber and lightweight triaxial fiberglass for weight reduction without sacrificing pop and energy.
- Balanced flex allows skiers to charge groomers and big terrain, yet have enough flex in the tip and tail to remain playful across the mountain and float through powder.
- Rounded mini-cap top edge with full-height UHMW sidewalls are bombproof and provide a sleek look.
Don't just take our word for it
The Ahmeek 105 could arguably be in this section (all-mountain More Forgiving), our More Stable all-mountain section, or even our All-Mountain Freestyle one. That’s because it’s a damp, pretty stable, and playful ski that offers an excellent blend of firm- and soft-snow performance. Its “camber pockets” in front of and behind the bindings lead to above-average edge hold for a ski this wide. Coupled with its fat, soft tips, that makes the Ahmeek an excellent carver, while its fairly deep tip / tail rocker lines also make it feel maneuverable in tight terrain.
Blister Gear Review 2022 Winter Buyer's Guide
Ride Notes: Burly, nimble, light - but not too light - it busts crud with ease and rises up in powder.
Design Needs: Float in deep powder - whip around trees - rail on groomers like a narrower ski.
Purpose: Build one ski to do everything but make the most of a day when the powder is fresh. Make the one ski that you can stash in your car and not need to worry about what conditions are like.

Are they tuned and waxed?
Skis come tuned with a 1° base edge bevel and a 2° side edge bevel and a slight tip/tail detune. The skis are waxed with a universal temperature wax to get you going.
Laminated ash/poplar hardwood: Long grain premium white ash and tulip poplar is hand selected and cut into full-length strips. Strips are individually flex indexed and laminated together symmetrically. Each laminated core is CNC milled to a precise thickness profile developed for each model and length.
Unidirectional carbon fiber strips below the core, lightweight triaxial fiberglass below the core, fiberglass binding mat underfoot. Rubber bonding strips placed along edges, sidewalls, and ends for rock solid bonding.
Entropy Super Sap® epoxy contains 28% bio-based content and is specifically designed for skis. It's formulated for high-strength and impact resistance, which creates a durable, tough, and lightweight composite.
Full-height UHMW - the same raw material as your base, bombproof and double chamfered for reduced swingweight. A rounded mini-cap top edge rolls over the sidewall to protect your topsheets.
Clearview gloss nylon with sublimated graphics and transparent windows to the wood core.

The Ahmeek's are a great pair of skis for the midwest with occasional trips out west. They handle moderate powder and tight trees with ease, while remaining fun on groomers and mixed midwest conditions. They are much lighter than my previous pair of skis, yet stiff enough to charge through chop! I really like the limited edition graphics as well and the ability to customize the design if desired! This ski has made both my narrower and fatter skis essentially obsolete, and is definitely more fun to ride that both of those!
I bought the 2022 Ahmeek 105's after taking a few runs on a pair of Shaggy's that my brother lent me, and I couldn't have been happier with them last season. I was expecting them to be a good all-mountain skis that made some compromises on differing terrains, but I couldn't have been more wrong. They were a true joy on the long groomers that I rode in Utah. They carve well, and are incredibly controlled when you want to go fast. I didn't get to experience them on a powder day out west, but on the powder I could find they were incredible. I also had a chance to run them through some mixed conditions at Mt. Bohemia, and they made my trip up there one of the most memorable so far. For a pair of skis that are a joy in so many different conditions, I couldn't have asked for anything better.
Like many avid skiers, Ive traveled for years with multiple skis, always dreaming of characteristics that would be desirable in a single ski travel ski. Let’s face it, traveling with multiple skis or even trying to swap out once on the mountain is a pain. I want, no, need, versatility to ski the entire mountain. The Ahmek 105 with nanomag is the ski Ive dreamed of. This ski is FUN. Trustworthy. Predictable until it isn’t (ie fun, see comparison to WRT below). It’s a workhorse and I will be buying the 115 for next season for deeper/storm days.
This is the 5th ski in my current quiver (Stockli AX, WRT, E100, DPS 106 C2). This ski is lighter than the E100 yet nearly as damp and stable at 50 mph plus. It’s got a kick like my WRT (you read that right). Load this sucker up with shorter turns on harder snow and, not only will the edge be there, but you’ll get some out of the turn ( was shocked by this!). It’s reasonably quick in trees and floats well. The tail is there, but releases on demand. Smears and checks back up immediately. It engages in turns at slow speeds (super important for me, I love edging on cat tracks or mellow slopes). It seems to “want” any turn, or turn shape I throw at it. Tip shape/flex remains stable in chop and at speed (yet it is such a light ski, how!?). All this in a 105 waisted ski, insane! I blindly purchased this ski last summer and, for the first time in years, I am not looking for a replacement in this category.
I am 6’4”, 190. Bought the 186, stock layup/core, added nanomag. P14’s OTL. I do wonder what a longer 188-190 version would be like BUT with the blunt nose the effective length/area appears the same as my 190 Wailer 106’s…
Replaced my old center mount Line Blends with Ahmeek 105s this year. I mounted Marker Griffon bindings 3.7cm forward from the suggested mount point to get a more centered feel to rotate in the air. They worked fantastic in all ways. They're a little fat for groomers but doesn't matter, they handle great. They also are great for skiing switch. They have great grip on ice and handle powder and trees like a champ. They have great balance in the air and are very nimble. I skied my local groomers along with powder, ice, and trees (and rocks) in Winter Park and Breck. Also skied trees, cliffs, powder and ice at Bohemia. It's awesome having skis recognizable as midwestern skis, I recieved a lot of compliments. These skis rip!
I purchased my Ahmeek 105's July of 2021 and outfitted them with LOOK pivot bindings. I never had a chance to demo the skis before purchase so I primarily went off of previous reviews and the blister review posted on the skis.
Needless to say after a few michigan weekend trips and a week trip out to Idaho I am 100% sold on this ski. I am every impressed on how the ski handles in all conditions. On my trip to idaho we had conditions ranging from spring corn to 5-6" of fresh to hard groomers at the end of our trip. It handled all conditions with ease. The ski charged through the ungroomed chop and was a riot to hop off of the runs into the trees and glades. I was very impressed with the skis frontside groomer performance, and the versalitity to go anywhere on the mountain and not worry about swapping skis.
Awesome ski for all conditions, Thanks Shaggys!
