I spoke with the owner for quite some time, and they had quite the process to restore the machine. They even replicated the stitchwork, and hand made the various obsolete canvas fasteners, etc. The skis are a laminated wood/aluminum combo...their son took the task of building them like OEM. They have tracked down info around the world indicating at least 30 if these still exist, though most are incomplete, modified or rusting away. Some went to other countries in military surplus sales (England, Australia etc), and some are still in use (they said one is being used in Oregon, hauling logs up mountainsides for a private lumberjacking outfit)
