Where can I find my favorite ski poles?

Where can I find my favorite ski poles?
Q: Several years ago, the Alsop company made ski poles with shock absorbers under the handles. I have been trying to find them in the Denver area and have been unsuccessful. Have you seen these anywhere local to Denver? What is your opinion of them?

A: I still have a pair of those poles and use them a lot. The Alsop company is located in Bellingham, Washington, but I don't think they've made those for eight to ten years.
