    Does he get the previously promised $20 if he dolphin turns down the 45 deg chute? Or is that a separate promotion?

    This thread is fucking gold, btw. Thanks, bushy.

    Why arent Releasable poles straps the standard?

    You seem serious, sport. Thatís weird.

    Iím in Michigan, far enough away that a trip to VT is an all day adventure. Itíll take 3 days minimum to get out there and back. To be clear, I havenít expressed an interest in your chute, and Iím not interested in some uncomfortable ski off. Iím not sure three days to ski some chute in VT plus $1k is worth the vacation time Iíd have to burn to do it. But Iím listening. Where would I be staying in this adventure?
    focus.

I lost my bar tending job, my ski instructor job and was in place where I had almost no support network. As most skibum do I was living very paycheck to paycheck and lost my ability to pay rent. I got blackballed from working anyplace in Utah, and quite frankly most places in the country. doing the one thing beside Engineering I am good which is ski teaching. I literally forgotten about this a long time ago this was spring of 2009....11 years ago.

    I came to post a couple reasons why straps are good but I feel like I just went to get drinks at a bar and when I came back everyone is arguing.

    To be fair to the guy whoís paying me to go to VT to ski, thatís a pretty serious misreading. Like, epic apology level.

    In this epic thread.

    Could be endlessly tedious or over the top or an elaborate story or talked about for millennia. But warranted.

    Putting aside the lulz of that 45 degree Vermont gnar, internet ski offs, etc.

    Do you jongs not actually know how to use pole straps? Most people don't. They don't really go around your wrists... they go over your four fingers and then against the inside of your palm as you hold the pole. So it's easy to let them go if needed but also easier to hang on to them.

    Dude, I want releasable pole grips so I can McGyver myself out of avalanche burials (just need to fold up some parachutes).
    Aggressive in my own mind

    Do they speak English in what? This thread is fantastic.

    Whole hand up through the strap and down onto the grip. Itís easier to grab the pole in a race if you lose it for whatever reason. Have to finish course with all gear for time to count.

    Am I making that up? Maybe. Maybe not.

    Not a lot of other reasons to ďstrap upĒ if weighing risk and reward. I do like having straps on my BC poles for a lot of reasons but I donít wear them when skiing. Regular poles, straps or no straps, youíre riding a chair to ski so who cares? Whether you use them and on what day is a very personal decision.

    I guess weíve reached peak gear talk or jongs have learned to use the search function and itís already been covered if this is the late February banter weíre seeing. Congratulations to you all mags. Weíve done it. This Buds for you.

    I have enjoyed my time here.

    You mean a "sleeve" of beer, not a "pint? Thats a British Columbia thing.
    Had a pint of beer at your local pub lately? Not likely, and certainly not legally.
    It turns out the pint does not technically exist in British Columbia, due to a strange and disparate brew of federal and provincial regulations.
    The federal government insists that anyone who claims to be selling a pint in Canada had better pour a full Imperial pint measuring 20 ounces, or 568.26 millilitres.
    The province’s Liquor Control and Licensing Branch, however, stipulates that individual servings of draft beer cannot exceed 500 millilitres or 17.5 ounces — effectively legislating a legal pint out of existence in British Columbia.
