The Correct Way to Put on Poles

As part of our snowshoe series today we’re talking about the correct way to put on poles, now we typically publish our snowshoe post every Wednesday but today we’re mixing things up just a little bit.

It doesn’t matter if your skiing, snowshoeing or even hiking, putting poles on properly can reduce wrist strain, muscle fatigue and even efficiency but the majority of people we see on the trails are wearing their poles incorrectly.

The wrong way to put on poles is to attack them from the top, all that does is keep the strap from sliding off your hand. This is the right way…Simple huh? We also have a video.
