    Having a pair of ski poles that are appropriate for your height and your skiing conditions can keep you safe and in control on the slopes. Some poles are designed for any type of skiing, while others are made specifically for cross-country, racing, or freestyle skiing. If you stick to one style of skiing, you should find a pair of poles made for the job. Less expensive poles are generally made with aluminum shafts, while the best quality poles have carbon fiber shafts for a lightweight and durable design. The handle and wrist strap may vary, and some designs may be easier to use with large gloves or mittens than others. A good pair of poles can go a long way in keeping you upright while you ski.
