ARVA Cerro Ski Poles

The unsung hero of your kit.

You don't often see people asking about ski poles in the lift line or writing lengthy reviews about them for magazines and websites, but those poles are there whether you're making your way down a section of bulletproof garbage or a pristine powder run. The Arva Cerro Ski Poles will keep the pole portion of your kit up to snuff with the rest of your gear with durable aluminum shafts and two-piece adjustability. Designed primarily for use in the backcountry, the poles have a solid locking mechanism to keep them at the desired length and an extended foam grip for those long traverses.

Breaks easily

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Got these on S&C for cheap. Got what I paid for. I've been through 4 sets of baskets in about 20 days out this winter and bent one pole. The double handle is convenient and the lock holds well but don't get these if you don't want to spend your whole day worrying about whether your skiing's going to break another basket
