Winter Essentials for Hiking
Winter is upon us. For many this marks a period of increased time spent indoors. However, those who decide to brave the elements are rewarded for their efforts with the beauty of a truly unique season. During this time the hiking experience is incredible as you get to witness the brilliant blue skies clash with the snow-covered trees and experience the stillness and solitude brought on by the mountain and forests.
Aside from warm clothing, there are two necessities for every winter hiker: trekking poles and snowshoes. Read on to learn more about how Cascade Mountain Tech can help you gear up for the remaining winter hiking season.
Cascade Mountain Tech offers a wide selection of aluminum trekking poles, which are ideal for winter hiking because they are less likely to snap under lateral pressure than carbon fiber trekking poles. This is particularly important during the winter season when the terrain can be unpredictable.
All of the trekking poles made by Cascade Mountain Tech are expertly designed to make ascends easier by reducing the impact on your knees, back, and hips. The poles will also improve your traction on slippery, snowy, or icy terrain; and increase your speed and balance regardless of the weather.
In order to ensure superior quality and longevity, our trekking poles are designed with rubber tops for increased comfort and equipped with dependable rubber snow and mud baskets that won’t break or crack. In addition, each trekking pole is equipped with tungsten carbide tips for reliable traction on snow or ice.
Our aluminum trekking poles are also equipped with an extended EVA down grip that is unrivaled in size, giving you considerably more space for hand placement. This larger surface for hand placement makes those steep inclines more bearable as you can propel yourself up any hill. Lastly, adjustable wrist straps ensure a secure grip regardless of the weather conditions.
Whether you are Nordic walking, day hiking, overnight hiking, or snowshoeing this winter season you’ll want to face the snowy and icy terrain with the highest quality trekking poles. Check out our current inventory of aluminum trekking poles to find a pair that are ergonomically designed for optimal performance without sacrificing comfort.
