Have you ever observed the vast variety of bizarre pole planting techniques on your average hill and wondered, “What the heck are these people thinking?!” My personal favorite is the guy who lightly touches his pole to the snow and then abruptly shoots his fist skyward! Then there's the fancy wrist flickers, and the ones who seem to be using XC pole technique when skiing alpine, and even a guy I saw who was neatly planting his uphill pole before every turn! What are some of your favorite sightings?
