As a Scott customer, I am beyond happy. I bought these Scott poles in early 1980 while I was rethinking my college education and ski-bumming in Park City, Utah. Skiing all day and waiting tables at Royce’s Restaurant every night.
These poles served me well for 37 years, 700+ ski days and millions of vertical feet. Mostly in Western North America, and occasionally in France. Somewhere along the way I bought Scott goggles which are also still going strong after at least 20 years.
All good until last Sunday on Mont du Vallon, Meribel, Trois Vallees in the French Alps. I planted the left pole a bit hard in a patch of soft snow and the basket ripped off. Time has come to retire the poles.
My message to management at Scott: Thank you for these great, amazingly durable poles and goggles. I’m happy to provide happy testimony anywhere, any time. Now, can you recommend suitable replacements? Match what I have, as close as possible. I can share my ski calendar for the remainder of the season and perhaps we can meet up.
