Jordan Stranger wins Urban Poling Inc. Aboriginal Artist Contest
Urban Poling invited Aboriginal youth from across Canada to submit original artwork for the graphic that would be featured on our special edition Spirit poles. The award included a cash prize and 10 pairs of the Spirit poles for the winner’s community. Read more.
For moderately steep slopes, simply decrease the pressure on the base of the handles or drag your poles behind you. For steep slopes, keep your poles upright and in front and out to the side slightly, so if you do fall you won’t land on your poles. Bend your knees and elbows, and slow down any momentum. For long descents, it may be helpful to lengthen the poles.
