I broke my supadupa carbon fibre pole on the trail the last time I was skiing. It was around -15C and apparently CF gets brittle at low temperatures. Diving equipment materials have a similar problem, but they reinforce them. Otherwise x_x. Anyway, I came back almost 4 km with one pole, or actually without using any - I decided they are redundant and it's more pleasant to glide without them. I'm getting new poles only out of decency!
Looking back at this time a year ago, the hell can freeze over
