New Club Partners – Folkrm, Audi & Bavarian Meats

Published by Kyle Watson on

We are always happy to welcome great brands that offer unique and quality products to our members. This month we are proud to present Folkrm, manufacturer of high-end back country ski poles, from Hood River, Oregon. Audi of Tacoma joins the club to offer ADL members discounts on parts & service on their Audi vehicles and finally Bavarian Meats from Seattle completes the trifecta by combining the finest natural ingredients and preparation methods for unparalleled taste – everyone should have a pack of their famous Landjaeger in their ski coat pockets.

We discovered Folkrm at the Snowvanna ski show in Portland and boy are we happy we did. Modeled after the famous Chamonix guide poles by Les Batons D’Alain, Folkrm poles are super light, strong and simple.  Who stops on a climb to reset their adjustable poles?? Not us and with their long biodegradable EVA foam grips you simply move your hands to the optimal position. Traditional adjustable poles are failure prone and often too tight or loose to adjust easily and reliably out in the field. Changing temperatures play havoc with the aluminum and the clips used to secure the poles break or fail often – leaving you out in the backcountry with unusable poles.

We have been looking for a pole solution like Folkrm ever since we started visiting Chamonix. Now ADL Members can get their own set quickly and affordably from this local company. Members receive 10% off your purchase with an exclusive club discount code – please email us to receive it securely.

If you’re a skier, chances are you have an Audi and now our own ADL Chief Mechanic and fast racer Canyon Thompson is working down at Audi of Tacoma. Their service manager Phi Tieskoetter is supporting all ADL members with great discounts off of parts & service. Please ask for him and Canyon when booking your appointment and let them know you are an ADL Member.

Finally, local Seattle company Bavarian Meats is a big fan of the ADL. We joined forces for the Winter Kick-off Movie Event and now we will be featuring their fine sausages and award winning landjaeger at future ADL events and parties. Our online store will also sneak a sample pack into every order until we run out. There is no better snack to eat on the lift to keep you going strong on a powder day!!
