I "inherited" an old pair of wooden skiis recently.It wasn't until I actually removed the bindings and had them cleaned up that I found out the manufacturer. Turned out to be Chalet by Harvey E. Dodds. I am wondering if anyone out there knows anything about them.
The skiis are bare of markings save for a faint M and perhaps the number 36 stamped on each ski just ahead of the binding.
The bindings are clearly marked with the Chalet brand, Harvey E. Dodds Limited - Made in Canada and a patent number that looks like 367562 (though it's hard to make out). The skiis have been formed into a high ridge that begins at the binding and extends forward about 2 feet and back about 14 - 16 inches.
I dropped them off at a local shop that employs higher functioning mentally challenged individuals who manufacture and restore furniture.
They sanded the skiis and sprayed a laquer on them to make them look better and I have them standing in a corner of my living room.
They look great.
I would love to know how old these might be and maybe a little more about the company.
