I want to buy my son's poles.
He is a 4.8ft female. These poles are possible for his skiing.
If not, what do you recommend?
BETTY C The Atlas Women's 2-Part Poles work great for me. I am 5'1" and love that they are adjustable in length. I also like the smaller hand grips that the women's poles have than the men's. I use them for snowshoeing but they should work equally well for skiing.
KYRA J C I would not recommend these for skiing. They have a tendency to slip, even when they are locked tight. They are great for snowshoeing, but not for skiing. Scott makes good poles for skiing.
