You need to stop moisture from getting into the carbon layup. To do that, you can do something as low-tech as covering it with black touch-up paint or even nail polish. There are more sophisticated ways if you prefer-- search the web.

You need to do this even if you only ride dry trails-- atmospheric humidity is a concern as well, although lower, if you chip through the clearcoat / top layer of carbon fiber.
