    Maybe you can work on your grip strength while you're hanging out on the couch for the next 10-ish days. Then you can join the strapless revolution!

    If I was skiing with nordic length poles, I'd probably want straps so I could skate better. But I ski with normal length alpine poles, so when I want to skate, I just kinda hold onto the pole. ...
