Ski Poles

About Ski Poles

When purchasing ski poles you'll want to consider the length and material. To determine the appropriate length, use the size guide below. A general rule is that when you put your pole on the ground with the tip facing up, you should be able to comfortably place the grip on the ground with your hands under the basket and your arms bent at a 90 degree angle. Of course you should go with what feels good to you. If you ski a lot of deep powder or are skiing switch through the park, you may want a slightly shorter length. If you want to experiment, consider an adjustable, telescoping, or collapsible model. As far as materials go, ski poles can come in a variety of carbon, aluminum, composite, and fiberglass. Carbon is popular among experts because of it's durability and light weight. Aluminum is economical and durable for the occasional skier, and is common in junior ski poles, however it is heavier than carbon fiber and other high end materials. Composite is more durable and flexible than aluminum, meaning it can bend a little more without breaking. If you're not sure which ski poles are right for you, reach out to us on live chat!
