Antique Ski Poles - 10th Mountain Division WWII
52" long x 8" diameter baskets
Metal, Leather, Wood
Authentic and original ski poles from the 10th Mountain Army Division that trained at Camp Hale, near Vail Colorado. Huge 8" baskets were great for deep powder. One of the baskets rattan rings has cracked and there is a tear in some of the leather on that basket, however the other is still intact. The original leather grips show their age, with one of the straps ripped, but still attached. The shafts of the poles are painted "camouflage white" - to blend in with the snow color. These are difficult to find in any condition and these are in "very good" condition from the ones we've seen. Made by Montagne USA.
