Black Diamond Expedition 3 Ski Poles

- +

Our Take

Your ice-ax is handy on the upper mountain, but until you hit technical terrain, your trekking poles will be your best friends. The Expedition 3 poles from Black Diamond are perfect four-season poles, whether you're skiing, hiking, or hauling loads to advanced base camp.

Collapsible in three parts, the Expedition 3s use dual FlickLocks for when it's time to fit your poles in your duffel, and the updated foam grip adds comfort while the new soft touch, dual density grip-top grabs bindings and buckles with ease for quick adjustments. The Expedition 3 comes with powder baskets, so you can switch them out to match the season and the trip, and the new vari-width strap adds comfort and adjustability while moving through terrain.

Why is this a Guide Pick?

Keeley Rideout, RMI Guide

I use the Black Diamond Expedition 3 poles for both skiing and trekking. The powder baskets are great, and the adjustability makes them good for travel in steep terrain.
