WhiSki Poles™ are high-performance ski poles with an integrated flask in the cavity of the pole. Enjoy a drink post-ski, or simply skip the slopes and embrace the après ski life! WhiSki Poles™ utilize a standard ski pole handle with a proprietary screw off cap at the top of the pole. Just unscrew the top of the pole and throw one back, no need to take off those gloves! It only takes a single hand and you won’t have to worry about fumbling with the cap because there is cap-strap to make sure it’s never dropped.
This is THE ULTIMATE SKIERS GIFT For the adventurer who may already have everything … but would top everything off with a drink.
WhiSki Poles™ hold approximately 8 fluid ounces each, or a pint per a pair. If you fill your poles with a liquid that may freeze, please leave ample room for your liquid to expand (we recommend 3 inches from the top). FYI: Water freezes at 32 degrees F (0 degrees C) and 70-proof alcoholic beverages freeze at -2 degrees F (-19 degrees C), windchill does not matter. Each pole also weighs approximately 0.5 lbs when empty, or 0.9 lbs when filled. Most skiers don’t notice the additional weight added to the pole when on the slopes, as the poles were designed to be super light so the added weight of liquid shouldn't be an issue.
WhiSki Poles™ are crafted from the strongest and lightest aluminum available on the market (aircraft grade ALU 7075, 18mm diameter). Quality is important, that is why we’ve partnered with a top-tier ski pole manufacturer who produces poles for the biggest names in the industry!
The poles were engineered in the USA (patent pending) to be strong, light, comfortable and reliable. WhiSki Poles™ are all-mountain poles, and the premium alloy construction allows for top performance and durability. The poles sport a sleek matte black finish, which is stealthy and elegant at the same time.
Everywhere! Well, use your best judgment. They are primarily made for the Après Ski life ... take it from the mountains to the hot tub! You can use them while hiking, hanging, laughing, dancing, prancing, or, if you just fancy.
What makes WhiSki Poles™ great?
WhiSki Poles™ are optimized to easily use with gloves, no matter how clunky, no matter how chunky! We understand how difficult it is to unscrew the cap of a flask, water bottle, or anything for that matter on the mountain with gloves.
WhiSki Poles™ will be available in five different sizes. Please the chart above for suggested pole length based on skier height. Once the Kickstarter Campaign has concluded, a survey will be sent to all backers to verify pole size.
The poles go through an anodizing process to provide a corrosion-resistant & anodic oxide finish and meet the NSF / ANSI 61 testing standards (much like the inside of an aluminum beer can). This ensures toxins aren’t leached into the liquid from the pole, aint nobody got time for that!
WhiSki Poles™ are meant for skiing or drinking, not both at the same time. Skiing is fun, but never ski above your skill level. Never ski intoxicated! WhiSki Poles LLC strongly discourages consuming alcohol and skiing. Skiing and alcohol consumption can cause bodily injury, or even death. Always be safe on the slopes and follow all rules of the mountain. By purchasing WhiSki Poles™ you are agreeing to not hold WhiSki Poles LLC liable for any injuries resulting from use of our poles.
