    Good luck. I hope you are able to carve out a nice niche in the market. Or get bought out by one of the big boys for a nice payday if that's what you want!

    Tursen, at right, and Ashatu shape a new ski, carved from a freshly felled spruce tree. They heat the tips to soften them for bending and, after curing, apply rawhide bindings and tack horsehide to the bottoms.

    aaahhhhh nothing like first run on your own skis. I have 4 days on my skisand except for the first day I'm not bringing factory skis with me anymore.... Don't need to
