    Hi,

    ski pole or ski stick are the words commonly used to talk about the sticks used for skiing.

    What about: skiing pole / stick?

    Thanks!

    Hello barbarino25

    I wouldn't use either "skiing pole" or "skiing stick":).

    In British English, if you ski, it is only ski pole, not ski stick. However, people may say "I've dropped my sticks" when they have dropped their ski poles.
