Ski Poles




Ski Poles

Ski poles are designed for specific skiing styles and terrain. Choose ski poles that align with your skiing preferences and needs. The main types of to consider:

Alpine Ski Poles: These are the most common ski poles and are suitable for downhill (alpine) skiing. They are typically made of lightweight materials like aluminum or composite. Alpine poles have grips for a firm hold, adjustable wrist straps for security, and pointed tips for easy planting in the snow.

Freestyle Ski Poles: These are tailored for skiers who enjoy terrain parks and freestyle skiing. They are often shorter and lighter than alpine poles,  providing greater maneuverability. Freestyle poles may have softer grips and larger baskets (for stability during landings) compared to alpine poles.

Backcountry Ski Poles: These poles are intended for off-piste and backcountry skiing. They are typically adjustable to accommodate varying terrain and can be extended to use during ascents and collapsed for descents. They often have powder baskets for better floatation in deep snow and durable construction for use in rugged conditions.

Telescoping or Adjustable Ski Poles: Allow you to change their length to adapt to different skiing conditions. This makes them suitable for backcountry, touring, and varying terrain. These poles have locking mechanisms (e.g., flip locks or twist locks) to secure the desired length.

Nordic or Cross-Country Ski Poles: These  poles are designed for cross-country skiing, which includes classic and skate skiing styles. Typically longer than alpine ski poles, they have unique grips to accommodate the specific techniques of cross-country skiing. Nordic poles also have different basket types, with smaller baskets for classic skiing and larger, aerodynamic baskets for skate skiing.

Race Ski Poles: Are designed for the speed & precision of competitive alpine ski racing. They are lightweight and stiff, with minimal grips and streamlined designs for reduced air resistance.

Kids' Ski Poles: Youth ski poles are sized to fit young skiers. They are shorter, lighter, and designed for smaller hands. They are built with durability in mind to withstand the demands of young skiers.

Adaptive Ski Poles: Are designed to accommodate skiers with physical disabilities. They may feature custom grips or attachments to suit the specific needs of adaptive skiing.

Touring Ski Poles: These poles are intended for ski touring and backcountry skiing. They are often adjustable, lightweight, and designed to work well with climbing skins and touring bindings.

When choosing ski poles, consider the type of skiing you'll be doing, your skill level, and your personal preferences. The right ski poles can enhance your experience by providing the necessary support, control, and performance for the terrain and style of skiing you love.
