This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in May of 2018. The best poles don't have to be made of carbon fiber or some other high-tech material, but they do have to be lightweight, reliable, and easy to use. They're a crucial component of any skier's setup, after all, helping him or her to maintain balance and rhythm on the slopes. With that in mind, we've put together a list of the best models out there, from some of the top names in the business. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best ski pole on Amazon.
