Scott's Cascade Adjustable Ski Pole also collapses for more convenience while backcountry skiing. Adjust it to ideal lengths for skinning steeps or skiing powder, and collapse it for compact packability. An auto locking tension system ensures stability, security, and quick adjustments. Scott also added a foam cork grip that molds to your hand for customized comfort, and an additional no slip grip extends down the pole for steep skins. There's a Duraflex carbide tip to reduce stress, and the interchangeable baskets accommodate powdery and hardpack conditions.
