Skiing Skill Set (#113): The Pole Grip Snot Blow!

Snot blow with ski pole

We’ve all been there…you’re walking in your ski boots after a hard day of skiing, whether to apres or back to your car, and you have to blow your nose. But how to do it gracefully with both hands occupied carrying your skis and poles? The trick: The one-handed pole grip snot blow! Here’s how. While walking, life your arm and place one of your pole grips alongside your nostril, effectively closing its valve shut. Then, aim and blow the other to clear it (well away from anyone). Then repeat with the other nostril.
