Folkrm was founded by 2 friends and avid backcountry skiers in Hood River, Oregon. Our goal was to create a simple yet durable ski pole for those who find themselves uphill skiing as much as downhill skiing. After heavy testing throughout the Pacific Northwest, a few prototypes and some summer ski trips to the mountains, we arrived at a final design. Simple, efficient and durable, we believe we have come up with the most practical ski pole on the mountain.
