Post subject:  Trekking poles vs. Ski poles

What's the difference between trekking and (backcountry) ski poles. They look pretty similar to my uneducated eyes. Is there any disadvantage to using trekking poles as ski poles?

Post subject: 

generally they are pretty similar. The only functional differences I've seen are:
1) smaller baskets on trekking poles(easily remedied with new baskets)
2) ski poles typically have metal tips, with carbide ends, trekking poles have mostly plastic tips, with carbide ends. Surprisingly this makes a bit of difference in certain snow types as the plastic sometimes sticks a bit.

overall, if you have trekking poles, I wouldnt sweat it (unless you want new poles).

Nathan, I've been skiing with my trekking poles (with snow baskets) for two years now and don't think I can blame my form on the plastic tips sticking. :lol:

Trekking poles can also have nifty, if pointless, features such as extendability, 'shock absorbers', and other silly yet marketable solutions.

I've found that for extendable trekking are not as rigid as ski poles. They tend to vibrate with greater amplitute when tapping them on, say hard ice. Makes it harder, imo, to get the ski-grove on.

For the smaller person on a budget, kids poles work pretty well. Just don't fall on them too often and you'll be good to go.

$24.93 @ REI

Ski poles are better just like I always use. And Ian Derrington is right about it that is vibrates. $24.93 is a good price for the kids poles.
