Picked up an old copy of Skeeze mag. (Maybe 2007??) They had an article about newschoolers debating whether to lose the poles or not.
Where are the twin tippers with poles? Was dropping the crutches just a passing fad or not?
2nd pole question - One guy said that a skier would be lost at Vail or Breckenridge without poles. Would that go for a SB'ers too? Do you poleless SB'ers suddenly start to carry poles out west?
