By , December 30, 2011 7:00 PM

Surface Skullcandy Collab Ski PoleWhen the great minds at Surface and Skullcandy collided the outcome was the Collab Ski Pole. The 2011/12 Surface Skullcandy Collab Ski Poles are made of aluminum and come with soft ply rubber grips making them easy to hang onto. These sticks come with adjustable nylon straps so they will stay in tack while hucking off those cliffs. Beware of the steel tips on the end of these poles, they can be deadly.

Recommended use is big mountain, park and pipe. They come in lengths 110cm, 115cm, 120cm and 125cm and they come with alpine baskets.

MSRP: $64.95 Check Availability at evo or backcountry.com

Black Diamond Starlet Ski

If you are a woman looking for a great touring ski that will give you the ease of going uphill but will also hold it’s own on the way down, the Black Diamond Starlet Ski is the ski choice that will not leave you disappointed.

The Starlet is a women’s specific ski, constructed with a wide, soft-flexing & early rise tip. This tip will give you the needed float in the powder but will also slash through the crud or any variable snow condition. You’ll have enough float in the powder with an underfoot dimension of 100mm but you won’t think twice on those steep kick turn corners on the uphill climb up.

The Black Diamond Starlet Ski is built as a women’s specific torsion ally stiff flex that allows the desired stiffness. It is built with Black Diamond Formula One Technology, using three internal ribs to transmit power throughout the ski. Wood core. Available in length 156, 166 or 176.

The Starlet was Backcountry Magazine 2011 Editor’s Choice Winner.

MSRP: $699 Check Availability at Backcountry.com or these other stores..
