No snow. No ski.

That’s the simple fact of global warming and the grim predictions of disappearing alpine snow. And it inspired Soul’s singular focus:

Innovate the greenest equipment in the snow sports industry by merging sustainable design with uncompromising performance and truly original style.

• Founded and designed by former U.S. Ski Team racers competing at the World Cup and Olympic level.

• Made with Soul. We make our eco-friendly poles by hand in Park City, Utah, both to provide local employment as well as to curb emissions that cause the climate change threatening our snowy slopes.

They make ski and trekking poles, primarily from bamboo.

You can order them online via the website.
