OGDEN, Utah (ABC 4 News) – If you’re a skier, you’ll love this story. Monday, Goode Ski Technologies announced it’s moving its entire production line from China to Ogden. It’s expected to create roughly 100 jobs. It’s the first time a major ski manufacturer is making everything here in Utah.
The sound of custom built skis is something you’ll soon be hearing a lot more of in Ogden.
“We’re moving our snow ski production from China, here to Ogden, Utah, U.S.A.,” said Dave Goode, President of Goode Ski Technologies.
Monday, Goode Ski Technologies announced it will now begin making all its skis here in Utah.
“Here at the foot of the Wasatch, with neighboring skiing so close, it’s a tremendous opportunity for us,” said Goode.
Managers tell ABC 4 that means converting its Ogden prototype plant into full scale production, and quadrupling its workers.
“Over the next few months we’re going to be developing, bringing on 20 to 30 new jobs, and within the next couple years we believe that number will be close to 100 here,” Goode said.
Ogden’s Mayor believes those jobs will be a big spark to the economy.
“You do the math on the dollars that generates, and that’s millions of additional dollars flowing into the people of this community, so it’s a big deal,” said Matthew Godfrey, Ogden City Mayor.
It’s a big deal to Goode too. They said they want their exclusive carbon fiber skis made here in Utah to be best the world. It says so right on a sign the front door that reads “Beyond this door we build the best snow skis and water skis in the world.”
“Every day we walk in this building we want everyone to know, and remind all of ourselves, we have an obligation to build not just good skis or great skis, but the very best skis in the world,” said Kirk Langford, Vice President, Goode Ski Technologies.
And here’s how you know you got a ski made right here in Utah, each one comes with a sticker that says custom handmade in Ogden Utah. Goode expects to be making them here in Utah for a long time to come.
ABC 4 is told Goode skis plans to start hiring right away. You can see the skis made in Ogden at stores this fall.
SIA SHOW, DENVER, CO – Kirk Langford will look you in the eye and say “these are the best skis I’ve ever been on.”
Langford, who spent about three decades as a Marker and Nordica exec, joined up with David Goode a year go and got right to work in Goode’s Ogden, Utah, factory. Besides producing 27 new models of the composite pole that put Goode on the ski map, Langford led a ski renaissance that has 20 new Goode skis (encompassing seven shapes and molds) gracing the walls of their booth here at the Show.
Working in tandem with Goode, Langford says he soon realized that carbon fiber opens a new realm of possibilities as the perfect high-performance material for ski construction. After all, would you be using a tennis racquet or a golf club shaft that isn’t made of carbon fiber?
The team developed a simple rocker glossary: slight, rising and strong, along with traditional camber. With waist widths ranging from 74mm up to a hefty 128mm, key models include the Beyond (82mm), Impact (88mm), and the Fire (98mm).
A traditional woodmetal- laminate kind of guy, Langford admits he’s even starting to convert to fatter skis like the strong-rockered 126mm-waisted Rahu. The Goode catalogue includes a host of women’s specific models—carbon is ideal for a female’s needs—and even randonee and backcountry.
“I’m skiing better than I ever have,” says Langford of his conversion to carbon fiber—and the opportunity to test skis with company colleagues just a halfhour drive away at Snowbasin. He says working with David Goode, who has an impressive engineering background, revolutionized ski poles and then went on to become a legend for his water ski designs, is a good fit.

It is “Official”!
Regina Jaquess’s October 23, 2010 Pending World Record of 1-1/4 buoys @ 41 off (10.25m) has been approved by the IWWF.
In less than 2 weeks, the International Waterski and Wakeboard Federation approved Regina’s record, therefore removing the “Pending Status”, which now makes Regina the sole holder of the Official Women’s Slalom World Record.

Skiing behind a Nautique 200, both skiers ran 39-1/2 off in all of their championship rounds. It was the first time in the Big Dawg Series that both skiers in the finals ran 39-1/2 off and challenged each other at 41 off.
“I want to thank the Lord for making this possible”, said a happy Dave Miller. “A big thank you to all of the sponsors that make this event happen.”, Miller continues.
“Boy, did my GOODE 9900SL MID save me a few times!”, Miller told Dave Goode. “It was truly amazing! I can’t believe that it just kept going, even when I got into trouble!”, Miller concludes.
Dave Miller lead a strong Team GOODE to the 2010 Big Dawg Finals. A total of 7 of the Sweet 16 were riding GOODE Skis.
Followed by 5 of the Elite 8 who were riding GOODE. Then with Dave Miller’s victory and Marc Shaw’s 3rd place it shows that GOODE Skis were the most dominate skis used during the tournament.

After the Colorado Big Dawg stop, Dave decided to re-focus on 34mph (55k) and really got his 9900SL MID dialed in”, Goode continues. “The GOODE 9900SL MID has proven itself as a real winner!”, Goode concludes.
