Yes! You do need adjustable hiking/snow shoeing poles!
Add a sense of security as you face the trail with the Crescent Moon Trekking Pole, an all-season wonder that can be used for hiking, snowshoeing, or just walking in the park. A pole provides better balance, more efficient climbing, and reduced fatigue. Ideal for anyone between 4 ‘6” and 6’ 4”, this three-section pole can adjust from 25.6 inches to 55.1 inches.
Made with 6061 T-6 Aircraft grade aluminum tubing, it has an adjustable shock system (stainless steel internal spring) for hard or soft surfaces, which can be turned off with a simple twist of the pole's upper section. It comes with two sets of baskets (one for summer, one for winter) and a carbide tungsten tip with a rubber cover.
A pair of the poles weighs just over a pound and they collapse down to 24". That means they will easily fit into most backpacks. The first time you stop yourself from falling over you'll quickly appreciate poles. There's no reason to fall first, get the poles and go right past the fall. Straight into winter.
