skiermanOh look, another jackass gaper thinking poles make you a better skier!
If Andy Mahre and Pep Fujas have taught us anything, its that poles don't fucking matter. Anyone saying otherwise are either shitty skiers, mogul skiers, baby boomers or Tom Wallisch after finishing 12th in the US Open for skiing without poles.
You'll notice a trend... All the assholes who say you need poles to ski cannot provide ONE fucking reason why poles are necessary for skiing. Its because they're not.
*watches idea once*
Bruh this is such a shitty argument. U think that Mahre or Fujas got to where they are by never picking up poles? No you fucking idiot. Name one non-park skier who consistently skis without poles.
Ah yes skierman. You know more than everyone. This also proves that you are a shit skier. Anyone with half a brain cell or any skiing competence would agree that anyone who prefers to ski outside the park benefits from skiing with poles. Why do you think park skiers are literally the only skiers who ski without poles on a regular basis?
You can only ski competently without poles once you learn how to fucking ski the right way. Poles help with Balance and timing, two of the most important things to skiing. also, poles do help beginners move around the flats. Good luck trying to get a beginner to move forwards in a lift line on the slightest uphill angle without poles.
poles aren’t necessary but they sure help.
