As Hurricane Sandy is approaching the East Coast, I’m realizing that this is the first time this fall I’ve truly been confused about what type of weather is ideal. Today I am working from home in Vermont, where it is a balmy 62 degrees. It’s the perfect fall temperature for a run, hike, pick-up basketball game, or finishing up some last minute garden work- or of course, to sit inside and write a blog post. But anyway, at the same time, now that most of the leaves have fallen and all the trees aren’t the prettiest sight to see, I think I might be ready for snow. So whether or not this Snoreastercane (Snow-Nor’easter-Hurricane, get it?) hits us hard next week, I’m sure we’ll see snowfall soon!
The promise of snow excites many, especially one of our newest members—Soul Poles from Park City, Utah. Welcome to our network!
Soul Poles’ motto is: “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.”
Soul Poles are a one of a kind product created by skiers, for skiers, with an eye toward the future of skiing. Each and every Soul Pole is handcrafted in Park City using the most eco-friendly materials possible and is carefully guided through every step of the manufacturing process to ensure only the highest quality poles make it to the consumer. In doing this, Soul Poles can help to reduce waste (by not having to replace your poles), initiate a sustainable movement within the ever-consuming ski industry, and provide you with not only a functional ski pole, but a piece of art as well, whether it is the Original Soul, or the Limited Edition created by artist R. Nelson Parrish.
