60 YEARS AGO, WE CHANGED THE SKI POLE. THIS WOULD BE THE CATALYST FOR DECADES OF INNOVATION, TECHNOLOGY AND DESIGN TO FOLLOW. FOR 60 YEARS WE HAVE TAKEN A NO SHORTCUTS APPROACH TO PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT, RACING, CLIMBING, DESCENDING AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. FOR 60 YEARS, WE HAVE PUT NOTHING BUT PASSION BEHIND EVERY STRIDE, PEDAL STROKE AND CARVE. AFTER 60 YEARS, WE HAVE COME TO REALIZE ONE THING – WE CAN’T WAIT FOR 60 MORE. The sport of skiing was revolutionized with a technical innovation from Ed SCOTT, a talented engineer and ski racer living in Sun Valley, Idaho. Ed SCOTT's invention of the first tapered aluminium ski pole immediately replaced the sport's existing use of bamboo and steel. That revolutionary invention launched a new brand, SCOTT, and fundamentally positioned SCOTT as a technical product leader in the skiing market. Ed SCOTT's initial vision of technical innovation would serve as the cornerstone company philosophy as the brand matured and expanded to new markets.
