I can't even explain how much it annoys me when kids use their poles when they butter. I don't know why it annoys me so much. But they plant them in the ground to help them balance and help them get pressure onto their skis. It;s like a really ugly form of cheating. It looks stupid, your poles get in the way and it's cheating.
Stop doing it
sorry for the little rant about something so insignificant but it really annoys me
