The problem is that I don't have a stamping press (you already knew
that) and the skis on the average fold a sled are about 8 feet long
I'm thinking about using either an old pair of water skis or using
some 1 1/2" square tube, two runners, 4-6 inches apart as the
"skis"...heat and bend the tips up

Sorry, I guess I'm just not picturing it well today =-)
What's your profile shape?
Do you have access to a sheet metal brake?
Can you just use 4 smaller skis in place of 2?
Looks like it would be cheaper to just buy a complete new one at $230.
Consider using a 6 - 8 inch slice from a corrugated culvert, cutting it and
then heating and straightening it out. Gives strength and lateral stability.
A 1.5' dia culvert will give you a ski of about 4' long.
