Josh chats with Char Poles CEO and founder, Alex Carr. Char poles is a pole manufacturer that was created when Carr was touring in the backcountry and was in dire need of a screwdriver to adjust his bindings to fit his boots. While hiking back down he realized the potential his ski poles had for storing basic, but dire tools needed for skiing, particularly screwdrivers. Shortly after, he got to work on prototypes and eventually shaped his vision into the utility pole brand, Char Poles.
As the sport progressed and filming became a more dynamic factor in the sport, Alex added gopro/action cam attachments to his pole, which can be fully integrated into a monopod. Char Poles is still working to perfect their poles and make sure every nook and cranny of their ski poles is the epitome of optimal functionality.
