Pole Plant Ski Poles

Want something different?  Bamboo ski poles are back :-)

Our bamboo poles are at least 2x stronger than traditional aluminium poles under constant load, and even better when it comes to quick impacts due to their natural flex: they bend.​

Our ski poles are individually made by hand from natural bamboo canes, making each piece one of a kind. Classic and stylish. They can also be customised with different types and colour handles and baskets, and engraving your name, favourite phrase or personal motto.​

Simon REDDY Summit Goggles


Simon Reddy trained through our Pro instructor training programme, became a qualified ski instructor and went on to launch Summit Goggles in 2011. 

From those early connections, many of the BASS team wear Summit goggles on the hill everyday.  You can say that we have pretty much tested every model.

We have 2 levels specifically designed to help you get the most from you holiday:

Piste Improver

Les Gets, The Perfect Destination?

Conquering the Yeti black run, Les Gets


We think so, but what is Les Gets’ secret? We think it’s all about variety and more specifically, the variety of slopes.

Everyone has a favourite resort and different reasons why. Whether it’s the village, the slopes or a favourite restaurant, there is something that draws us back to certain places, time and time again.

The Les Gets ski area has such a wide range of slopes that are quick to access, it's ideal for groups with mixed levels of experience and abilities.
