Mike Terrell is an outdoor writer/ski writer and wrote up a great article about Nordic Ski Walking for the Traverse City Record-Eagle newspaper. When skiers and snowshoers are deprived of snow, Mike Terrell recommends Nordic Ski Walking. Mike has learned from experience that collapsible walking poles are far inferior to REAL one-piece Nordic Walking Poles. Don’t get scammed by cheap/flimsy collapsible walking poles that rattle, vibrate, refuse to hold their settings and/or collapse unexpectedly.
