Sizing of Ski Poles
Selecting a ski pole that fits your height, budget and style. Poles have four components: shaft, basket (at the bottom), grip and strap.
If you are a beginner rent poles when you rent your skis and boots. Aluminum poles are sturdy and cost-effective. Graphite or composite poles are lighter, but can break easily and are more expensive.
Skiing is an inherently dangerous activity that can result in serious injury. We recommend that you seek proper training and equipment before attempting this activity.
