Hey SheJumps ladies!
Our for-profit partner, Soul Poles, will be hosting a bamboo ski pole building workshop in Salt Lake City and we wanted to make sure that all you good people knew to come and learn about bamboo, build your own custom ski poles, and reconnect before what we all hope will be a DEEP winter in the Wasatch! You may have seen or heard of Soul Poles through the SheJumps newsletter blasts; nevertheless, if they are new to you, here is a quick rundown on the company and their Mobile Soul Shop Tour.
