I had a chance to demo these this spring. WHAT A BLAST! The big shovel on the front gives just the right float for all conditions - pow, crud, corn, mashed taters. The tail is the after burner. Get these babys on the groomed, and they carve like nothing I’ve been on. Already got a pair on order!
Message to the Shaggy's crew during my first day on the Fun Carver: "I'm throwing away all my other skis. These are sick."
I now have 2 pair with custom graphics packages and burn marks on my snow pants from all the hip dragging...
That sums it up...

These are fun! I learned to ski on Elan SCXs and was looking for something similar. Something that just rips turns easily in the conditions I experience the most: groomers or a few inches of fresh. These are perfect! I can crank up the speed and rip fun turns with very little effort. And I'm chasing my kids around the hill and still having fun on the greens when I get the opportunity to make 1 or 2 turns. It takes way less speed to make fun turns than most skis but if you crank up the speed the Fun Carver still delivers.
This is my second pair of Shappy's. Last year I bought the Ahmeek 95 and then I saw the new Fun Carvers and knew I had to give them a try. I bought a pair of custom Fun Carvers and couldn't be happier. These skis can hold an edge on hard pack like a race ski, but can plow through the crud and snow like my all mountain skis. This is my new go to ski and I couldn't be happier.
Shaggy's has great customer service and great products. My kids and I are all now skiing on Shaggy's and we love them. The custom ski option makes the shaggy's stand out even more. Getting skis that have something meaningful to me on them makes them even more special.
