Carbon fiber in outdoor gear is rapidly coming of age, from bikes and golf clubs to skis. Not only does the material make them lighter, it can make skis stiffer and provide a damper feel for eliminating chatter. Goode is one of the original ski manufacturers using carbon fiber, and they're made in Ogden, Utah, near Snowbasin Resort at the foot of the Wasatch range.
