Bring: You will need to bring your own pair of poles. Let us know if you have an extra pair to lend to someone else. Adjustable poles are 'okay' but short real ski poles are best. Here's how to fit them properly: Stand with arms at sides. Bring one hand up so forearm is parallel to the ground. Right where the palm is the pole handle should be. This is significantly shorter than the armpit measure we use for ski poles used on snow. There are many reasons why. With no snow under the ski we're closer to the ground and we want to be able to lean forward with our torsos while pushing off the poles behind our feet. It's critical to have these shorter poles for dry land Nordic walking.
