Let's talk POL-OLOGY

What are poles? Why do we use them? Who uses what?

We love these questions, and are here to help! Here is our summary:

Ski Poles: Made to be tough & sturdy, either one fixed piece, or two adjustable pieces. Intended for up and downhill use. 

Splitboard Poles: Constructed of three pieces to be adjustable and collapsible for downhill packability. Usually has a hook shaped grip to lift touring heel riser bars.

Snowshoe Poles: Lightweight, adjustable, and the most budget friendly for casual trail use. 

Still feeling overwhelmed by all the different types? That's ok! Try filtering our poles selection on the  left side of the page.
