As we've discussed before, making the switch from snowboarding to skiing this season has been a great one. I love the easy mobility and speed that comes with skiing and feel good about the progression I've made. I'm also fairly certain I look badass in my ski gear (I'm talking sweet skis and excellent boots). The one part of my ski bunny outfit that isn't quite up to par with the rest of my outfit though is my poles. The bf gave me a pair of old, rental poles when I made the skiing switch, and although they aren't the prettiest on the eyes, they were the best kind of price (free), so a girl's not gonna complain.
This past weekend though, I finally got around to upgrading my sad, little poles into something spectacular. I found neon pink duct tape on sale for only $1 and knew it was fate. The DIY was simple. I started by ripping the duct tape in half on the role. Then I wrapped it diagonally down the pole, making sure the width was the same in between throughout. It only took about 10 minutes and totally transformed my poles into something new, fresh and fun. If you have tired poles too, I highly recommend this DIY. Go grab some duct tape in the color of your choice and have fun!
