The 82-waisted Beyond is designed to carve with authority on hard snow, but should still offer a measure of float in softer snow-perfect for soft groomers or spring mush, where it won't trench too deeply. Slight tip rocker should smooth the ride and make the ski easy to pivot and skid. The sidecut will prefer mid- to long-radius arcs. Construction: wood core with all-carbon-fiber torsion box. Goode made a radical change in its layups last year, going with wood, instead of foam, in all of its cores.
