A long-forming trend for entrepreneurs seems to be creating products that combine skiing and drinking in an incredibly contrived manner. (Insulated fanny packs or ski boot bucklers with wine keys, anyone?) But the Cold Pole is actually pretty awesome. Unscrew the top of the grip, and you can pour in your favorite beverage for storage inside of the shaft. It even comes with a funnel and a wired cleaning brush. Depending on the length, each pole stores around 8 ounces of liquid—just make sure you don’t fill it with something that will freeze.
Pros: Novelty. Attention in the lift line.
Cons: Makes the pole heavy. Can’t drink subtly (see photo.)
