It matters little how much equipment we use; it matters much that we become master of all we do use.-Sam Abell
This week I wanted to do another quick gear review on a piece of gear that has stuck with me almost my whole ski career and that is a pair of G3 Via ski poles. NOT SPONSORED
Ski poles are something that we hardly ever think about until something goes wrong with them.
And that is exactly why I love my pair of Via pole so much. I have whacked countless cornices, trees, skis, and rocks with my set of poles and I am still never worried about them breaking any time soon.
I owned and snapped a pair of cheap, standard poles before I bought this pair of G3 Via’s and have never looked back since.
Some of my favorite features include:
- Easily adjustable size
- Extreme durability
- 3 good grabbing spots if you put duct tape on (which you should be doing anyway)
- Quality hand loops (they easily come off too, but never when you don’t want them to)
- Nice weight / quality ratio
- Good size powder basket
I really don’t know what else a ski pole can offer you other than carrying you up the mountain. (maybe some day)
If you have any more questions please leave them down below and I’ll be more than happy to answer then. But that concludes this weeks blog post, see ya next week.
