Why do you think the Materials Sciences Corporation chose you, a small ski maker, as a partner?

We are a small but really nimble high-end manufacturer. They’d been working with some large companies, but nothing came out of them. The big ski companies are about producing a ski as inexpensively as possible, whereas we are willing to use major quality materials and spend more time on product development. Because of that, we were actually able to bring aerospace-grade skis to market.
