Alcoholic MacGyverBy Rocky Thompson on August 18th, 2006
Whatâ€™s this? New Utah legislation that requires ski resort employees to kick drunk people off the lift? Fortunately the clever folks at Cold Pole have developed a way to get around these clearly unfair no-drunk-skiing laws. Just fill each pole with a half-pint of whiskey (or better yet raw ether) in the morning, and then stop back at your truck for a refill at 10am and you should be set until lunch. Gear tweakers who point out the increased swing weight of the poles need not worry. After two pints of whiskey you probably wonâ€™t use your poles, or even need your boots on the right feet for that matter. Sure, a flask might meet your needs while being far less conspicuous than the huge Cold Pole logos, but this is about having class.
