Best in Style
Grass Sticks Original Bamboo

Grass Sticks is a Steamboat Springs-based startup that seemingly has found the answer to all our sustainable ski pole needs for the foreseeable future. At the very least, they’ve figured out the secret to the coolest looking skis on the market.

Aside from style, Grass Sticks purportedly share a swing weight and natural flex comparable to their carbon fiber counterparts. While this remains unverified by the rigors of the scientific method, aesthetically and ergonomically they do just about everything you’d want a quality pole to do.

Unfortunately, Grass Sticks suffer from some of the same value issues that we run into with poles around the $100 dollar mark- they only come with a single set of baskets. Though this is partially assuaged by a total of 3 different sizes in 8 colors available on their website, it would be awesome to see some more bang for your buck upfront.
