Your idea of a good time in the winter always focused on roaring fires in the fireplace and hot toddies, with a quick stomp on snowshoes thrown in. But now, with a house full of relatives for the holidays, a nice, loooong cross-country ski looks mighty appealing. Lace up your boots, grab your skis and Salomon Escape Ski Poles, and get away from the maddening crowds. This lightweight fiberglass pole has EVA grips for long-holding hand support. Adjustable straps accommodate all hand sizes, and steel tips bite through thick ice crusts for cross-country stability. Touring baskets speed along the groomed when you're at the Nordic track but have enough lift to float through a fresh dusting of powder when you're breaking trail.
Escape Cross-Country Ski Poles are versatile and easy to use with a durable lightweight composite shaft and ergonomic features built in, making them perfect for beginner and intermediate skiers.
