Goode’s soon-to-be-released line of new carbon fiber race skis captured multiple top-five finishes at the USSA Masters Nationals last weekend in Big Sky, Mont.
On the strength of fourth and fifth place finishes in giant slalom and super-G, respectively, Tim Itin finished third overall in the Men’s 6 division. In Women’s 7, Dawn Goode took second place in downhill, fourth in both super-G and giant slalom, and fifth overall.

“I was really excited to see Tim and Dawn ski so well on our new race skis,” said Dave Goode president and founder of Goode Skis. “Dawn’s downhill ski was just built on Friday and then to have her podium just a few days later was truly exciting. Then to watch Tim podium in the overall capped off a great week of racing.”
The big results come after Dawn earned two giant slalom victories during the season-long Jan’s Cup Series and both Dave and Dawn taking second place in their respective divisions at the USSA Masters Intermountain races held at Snowbasin resort in Utah.
Goode Skis is the first and only company building pure carbon fiber race skis. The skis are expected to become widely available this fall.
