ok, i'm probably going to get a lot of hate from this thread, but i'm writting it anyways.
so the whole no poles trend going on right now, I bet a bunch of you are all like "no poles rules, why the hell did we ever use them in the first place?" Well, I have one question for you:
Have you ever broken a pole while skiing? The fact that you break poles shows that you actually use them and need them. Unless of course you enjoy falling and haveing bad technique.
and remember, poles are free - just take them from your friendly rental shop.
