For the Eco-Conscious Powderhound: Soul Poles
Made by hand in Park City, Utah, Soul Poles are eco-friendly bamboo ski poles. U.S. Ski team racer Erik Schlopy and skier-musician Bryon Friedman began the company to help curb waste in the ski gear industry while providing jobs for Park City locals. Not a bad mission. Another bonus: Soul Poles offers a one-year, no-questions-asked warranty; if your pole breaks after the warranty expires, they'll replace it for just $35.
