Right now on the northern coast of Lake Michigan, a crew of passionate ski makers are hunkered down over one of the best custom ski production lines in the country prepping for the end of their annual pre-sale.
As one of the best deals in the ‘custom’ ski market, the presale is a great opportunity to replace trashed skis with a new pair of “Copper Country” planks. Just so happens the pre-sale ends tomorrow so get ’em while they’re cheap.
Affectionately named for its rust belt roots, Shaggy’s Copper Country Skis is not just another stoner built, backdoor ski company. They only use Michigan wood which they mill themselves before adding base material and pressing the ski on their dialed-in, one-of-a-kind press.
“You won’t find the gimmicky “tech” stuff that some other brands put out purely for marketing, we simply use engineering and real world testing to refine and improve our skis” – Shaggy’s Mission Statement
If ski-touring is your main mode of shredding worry not– they also make carbon core skis for the uphill minded as well. However what really separates Shaggy’s from its American made competition is their handle on quality control. Basically, what you see is what you buy– quality skis.
