These sport specific items are crucial to get the most from your day on the slopes. A skier without poles prevents mobility, reduces timing and stability and if you forget them you’ll be stuck paying rental fees. A rider without a multi-tool is taking a risk that his or her setup won’t have any issues. Most hills do have tools at the bottom of the hill, but if your mishap happens at the top you’re euchred. Bolts come loose due to vibration, having a multi-tool to tighten these in a crunch can be a lifesaver. Plus, helping out a fellow winter enthusiast in need is good Karma.
