Ed Scott's invention of the first tapered aluminum ski pole immediately replaced the sport's existing use of bamboo and steel. That revolutionary invention launched a new brand, Scott, and fundamentally positioned them as a technical product leader in the skiing market.

Half a century ago, a one-man band of a business took skiing to new heights with the invention of the first tapered aluminium ski pole.
Until then, bamboo and steel had been the only option, but Ed Scott’s foresight and determination changed the face of the industry forever.
Today, Scott are market leaders in high-performance ski gear, a worldwide powerhouse of innovation, technology and design which has not only revolutionised but reinvented the sport of skiing.
The award-winning company founded by an avid ski racer and engineer 50 years ago in Sun Valley, Idaho, continues to build on his initial vision, with their commitment to progressive sport still a cornerstone of Scott’s far-reaching philosophy in the 21st century.
