    Why arent there any American made skis?

    The rest are Japanese right?

    Think polaris, artic cat/tiger shark...
    If there isn't profit to be made, it folds.
    Whether it be poor marketing, lack of technology, dealer network, market flooded, ect. These two companies couldn't make a go of it.

    I am surprised Polaris folded out of the PWC market just after introducing the MSX line. They were finally on to something. I guess like they say, If you don't know what it's about, it's about money.
