HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SKI POLES?
There’s no skiing without ski poles – but how do you know which ones to buy? Here's all you need to know…
Choosing your ski poles isn’t tricky, you just need to consider three things: size, the handles, and the basket (that’s the ‘basket’-shaped bit that fans out around the bottom of the pole).
To see if a ski pole is the right size for you, turn it upside down so that the grip is touching the floor and hold it vertically with your hand under the basket – basically, form an angle of 90° with your forearm. We recommend that you do this with your knees slightly bent while wearing your ski boots. If the angle is less than 90°, try a shorter pole. If the angle is greater, get a longer pole.
