    • Every pair of skis is custom built, whether you add a custom option or not, we use the exact same build process in every pair. It takes time to carefully craft each pair. We don’t cut corners, only the best - no compromises.
    • Custom skis can take time to complete artwork and design, so order early!
    • Our ski build queue is currently at our production capacity and quality takes time

      Michigan - the name of our beloved home state comes from the Ojibwe word mishigami, meaning “large water” or “large lake.” The water of the Great Lakes is incredibly important to so many aspects of life for not only Michiganders, but all those living in the Great Lakes Region.

      From our ski factory here in Northern Michigan, we’re a short drive from the shores of Lake Michigan, known as michi-gami (“great water”) by the Ojibwe. During the warm months, countless people enjoy its crystal-clear waters, and during the winter our local topography is blessed by its plentiful lake-effect snow.

      The Lake Michigan Limited Edition graphic highlights the famous Sleeping Bear Dunes in the lake’s silhouette (hand-drawn by our own ski builder, Kelsey Fegan), and the wood core is visible throughout most of the ski’s length. The blue sidewalls add a unique touch that meshes perfectly with the overall theme.

      Available on most skis in our line, we’ll only have 100 of the Lake Michigan Limited Edition graphic available, so get yours before they’re gone!

      Show off your love for craftsmanship with this custom build on your new skis! We proudly use Select Cut Northern Michigan hardwoods for our cores and every pair of skis built with this clear topsheet will be unique. No two pieces of wood are ever the same (each pair uses 14 pieces).

      • Custom built - each pair built just for you
      • Lake Michigan die cut base graphic - see the lake on the base of your skis too
      • Real wood - you're seeing the actual construction of the ski 
      • Available on most ski models - to suit your unique skiing style

      Core

      Laminated Ash or 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. 

      Composites

      Unidirectional Carbon Fiber strips along the core, lightweight Triaxial Fiberglass above and beneath the core, Fiberglass binding mat underfoot. Rubber bonding strips placed along edges, sidewalls, and ends for rock solid bonding.

      Sidewall

      Full height UHMW - the same raw material as your base, bombproof and double chamfered for reduced swingweight. 

      Topsheet

      Clearview gloss Nylon with sublimated graphics and transparent windows to inside the ski. 

      Base + Edge

      1.4 mm CNC Knife Cut 4001 Race Grade Durasurf sintered UHMW. 2.2 mm over-sized and heat treated edges take a beating.

      Blog Post About How to Size and Select Skis

      Here's a basic chart to get you started:

      Ski Sizing Chart


      Sizing skis is a little bit of an art and a little bit of a science. There are numerous factors that all affect the optimal ski length for you. 

      A few of the factors are:

      • Skier size and weight
      • Skier ability (experts size up, beginners size down)
      • Type of terrain you like
      • Where you normally ski
      • Current ski size

      The list could go on and on, but if you need help with the decision, always feel free to call us at 231.459.4323, live chat, or email us!

      What snow conditions are they made for?
      This limited edition graphic is available on most ski models that we build, if you need help picking the perfect pair, call us at 231-459-4323 or fill out the form at www.skishaggys.com/pages/help-me-find-skis!

      What length should I get?
      Each model in our ski line has unique characteristics - please visit each individual ski model page for more info or contact us. View 2021 skis at https://www.skishaggys.com/collections/2020-2021-skis.

      What's the base graphic?
      The base graphic features one ski black and one ski blue with opposing "Shaggy's" letters and the shape of Lake Michigan in them. 

      Why aren't they available on the Brockway 80/90/100?
      The construction of the Brockway ski line has has a strip of carbon fiber over the core (the other models the carbon is under the core) and the look is different. If you'd like to get this graphic on those skis, just contact us for a graphic mockup - we'll get them built for you!

      What bindings should I get?
      You can use any binding on these skis. The binding brake width must be at least as wide as the waist width of your selected ski model. For example, the Ahmeek 105s require a brake width of at least 105 mm. We run Marker Griffon bindings on our demo skis. Visit your local ski shop for bindings and mounting.

      What are Camber Pockets?
      Camber Pockets are additional small sections of camber (about 4" long and 0.030" tall) molded into the overall camber of the ski in front of and behind your midsole position. They increase contact pressure to improve grip on hardpack and ice.

      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.

      Fantastic Skis

      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.

      Loving my Ahmeek 105s

      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!

      Mercedes with a side of Porsche

      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.

      So much fun

      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.
