Don’t underestimate the benefits of good ski poles. They must be strong for planting turns, lightweight so your arms don’t tire, and flexible enough so they won’t break during a fall.

With your poles upside down, grab the pole beneath the basket so that the top of your thumb touches the basket. If your elbow is at a 90-degree angle (approximately), you’ve found the right size. If the angle of your elbow is less than 90 degrees, you need a shorter pole. If it’s more than 90 degrees, you need a longer pole.

Hahaha. Honestly, ski poles are a marketing scheme. This video is a prime example of how useless they are. They’re completely unnecessary and hinder a majority of skiers. Don’t be a sucker.

Arne Larson says:

“c” is a troll who leaves this same comment on many ski pole videos, and probably doesn’t know how to ski anything but a flat, groomed beginner slope. While it’s true that a novice can be challenged by coordinating a pole plant with the rest of the turning technique they’re trying to learn, as you advance in skills, a ski pole becomes an important tool for timing a turn and is critical for attacking steep slopes, powder skiing through trees or a skiing a big mogul run.
