Black Diamond Powder Baskets -
Black Diamond Powder Baskets are ski pole baskets built to float on soft snow, not sink.
These Powder Baskets feature a 100 mm diameter surface for powder with an inner ring of teeth for bite on firm snow, making these versatile in bounds or out.
Sold as a pair.
Have you ever been the slowest one on a powder day and then looked down to find your ski pole baskets are miniscule compared to your friend's? If so, it's time to upgrade to Black Diamond Powder Baskets and decrease your lag time!


  • Fit all current Black Diamond models

Traction and Grip:

  • Hard inner ring with serrated teeth provides grip; large, flexible outer ring keeps poles afloat


  • Sold in pairs
  • BD baskets are also easily removed when converting lower pole shafts into a probe
  • Rubber/plastic hybrid

Support yourself on the snow with a pair of powder baskets for your Black Diamond trekking poles. These baskets are 10cm in diameter to resist plunging into deep snow, and feature an inner ring of teeth for a solid grip on firm snow.

Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS)
The Black Diamond® Powder Baskets are a dream for backcountry skiers. Similar to the functional 3/4 BD Basket, they feature both an inner ring of teeth for bite on firm snow AND a larger, floating 100 mm diameter surface area for powder.
Mountain Gear
Powder Baskets from Black Diamond are made of two materials of different densities merged together to create a basket with a compact core for hardpack and a lightweight outer diameter for deep powder.


Heading for the deep powder? Retrofit your Black Diamond Poles with these baskets for better flotation.


Evo (2014)
The Black Diamond Powder Basket is light, durable and offers plenty of surface area for the lightest snow. Sold in pairs.


The Powder Baskets by Black Diamond has a hard inner ring of teeth for a solid grip on hard pack and a large, floating, 100-mm diameter surface area that stays on top when you're blessed with the light stuff.

Berg's Ski Shop
100 mm diameter basket with inner circle of grippy teeth for bite. No question the best basket that BD makes and actually not too big for everyday adventures or spring corn harvesting. A few of us here at the shop always keep at least one of these in the repair kit for that just-in-case moment since we know that trying to use bailing wire and branches is not the best fix.

Baskey modified

I bought these to replace some plastic baskets on a very old pair of Trak cross country poles. They come with a 1/2" diameter hole. I drilled them out to press fit on a wider shaft. They are sturdy enough for this modification, light weight and big enough for serious power snow support.

Essential for snow

Bought these after my first snow hike where my poles were postholing like crazy. Definitely necessary for snow. You can also use them to toss chunks of heavy snow at your friends in front of you on every stride or target practice on trees. Fun stuff.
