At GOODE Skis we like to celebrate accomplishments.  And as a long-time sponsor and supporter of the U.S. Nationals, we think that qualifying for, and skiing in your first Nationals, is one of the biggest achievements in our sport.  

That’s why I’ll pay the entry fee for any slalom skier who this year, while riding one of our skis, competes in the U.S. Nationals for the first time.

Now there is no excuse not to join us in San Marcos this August.  See you there!
