Shaggy’s Copper Country Skis, an indie ski brand from Northern Michigan, is starting to make a name for itself in the skiing community.
I keep seeing them more frequently, even outside of the Midwest.
They just get the job done.
Shaggy’s is teasing a new model for next season.
They haven’t named the ski yet, but it looks like this will be Shaggy’s first frontside oriented ski in their catalog. Most of Shaggy’s skis are freeride oriented, but the unofficially named ‘Fun Carver 88’ looks to be the most groomer/frontside ski to date.
Check it out. I’m excited to see this thing in action next season.
Shaggy’s Copper Country Skis: “The ski is so new it doesn’t yet have a name!
What’s this ski? A huge powder inspired 152 mm rockered tip – an 88 mm frontside friendly waist – and a race inspired stiff flat tail…
Until we name it, we’re calling it the Fun Carver 88, it’s the only name that does it justice. Or maybe we should just call it thereverse mullet – party in the front, business in the back.
This ski will make you a better skier and people on the chairlift will turn their heads in awe as you rip immaculate slalom turns on a ski with a 150 mm + tip.
If you want to make every vertical foot count with tight turns, then hop off the trail in fresh powder – there’s only one ski you want – and it’s this one. It’s weird, funky, and kind of confusing to look at – but the sh!% eating grin on your face after your first run will tell the whole story.
This isn’t a one ski quiver, it’s different. This is the ski to complement your true on-and-off trail all mountain skis, like the Ahmeek 105s you probably already have.
This is the Fun Carver, it’s extremely easy to initiate those high-G tight slalom inspired turns with the energy and pop of a one year old Siberian Husky. With a moderate flexing tip and rock solid tail, this ski is the whole package, even when you want to let them run with medium-to-large radius turns.”
