  Deen Watson has a nice fleet of sleds, pictured on our home page.  His skill as a graphic artist has enabled him to restore a number of sleds. He states his introduction:

  I enjoy collecting and refinishing snow sleds. I have real respect for the quality and craftsmanship of the "older" runner sleds.  Below and on the other slopes (pages) is my collection.  Some I have completely restored, some need to be restored, and some are in their original condition.  I welcome any comments regarding the sleds.  You can reach me at:
