Black Diamond Expedition 3 Poles
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.
A versatile four-season pole for skiing, hiking and hauling loads to advanced base camp, the Black Diamond Expedition 3 features dual FlickLocks for a full range of adjustability. This pole fits in your duffle when it’s time to lug your gear to the airport, 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.

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.
